(KMOV.com) - According to authorities, a trio of men were accused of stealing $32 million in a fraudulent free phone program to fund a life of luxury may have some of the charges against them dropped.

In January, authorities say prosecutors requested the judge to drop all but one of the charges over concerns about evidence. That one charge could still get the trio in trouble for fraudulently claiming $5 million dollars in stimulus funds.

Kevin Brian Cox, Thomas Biddix and Leonard Solt are all accused in the case.
