The white woman notoriously dubbed "Central Park Karen" for calling 911 on a black man who asked her to leash her dog a year ago in Central Park underwent "psychoeducation about racial equality" - five therapy sessions "designed for introspection and progress" - and so her case was dropped Tuesday, the New York Post reported.
The New York Post reported that Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said a judge granted prosecutors' request to dismiss the case against Cooper after she completed five therapy sessions "designed for introspection and progress".
"Mr. Cooper did not wish to participate in the criminal justice process but we determined that the defendant's offense wasn't exclusively against one individual but was a threat to the community if allowed to go unchecked", Illuzzi said in the statement.
"I'm going to call the cops", Amy Cooper tells Christian Cooper on a video.
Cooper, 40, was charged in October with falsely reporting an assault when it was revealed that after her initial call to police to report an alleged threat, she falsely reported that Christian Cooper assaulted her. She was sacked from her job at the Franklin Templeton investment firm as a result of the viral encounter, and she previously apologized for her conduct. The Manhattan district attorney's office offered her the chance to complete a program in exchange for the case's dismissal.

Video of the May 2019 incident was posted to Twitter by the black man's sister. I think it's a first step. I think she's gotta do some reflection on what happened because up until the moment when she made that statement.
'It was just a conflict between a birder and a dog walker, and then she took it to a very dark place. "We thank them for their integrity, and agree with the outcome", Barnes said in a statement to Law&Crime.

He also threatened legal action against people who rushed to the wrong conclusion'.
After the incident went viral previous year, the company fired her, saying: 'Following our internal review of the incident in Central Park yesterday, we have made the decision to terminate the employee involved, effective immediately'.
Mayor Bill de Blasio was among those who condemned the incident.
