Knife case let-off for sex beast.
Sex beast Colin Slaven, 24, cheated justice because he is already serving four years for child-porn offences.
He was accused of being armed with two blades while trying to enter a neighbour's house in Edinburgh last October.
The IT worker also faced separate breach of the peace charges.
But they were dropped by the procurator fiscal in Edinburgh last week.
Slaven was one of a gang of eight paedophiles convicted of child-porn offences in May.
Gang member John Milligan, 40, of Glasgow, got 17 years for conspiring to sexually abuse children and amassing child porn images.
A Crown Office spokesman said: "Two cases were deserted because Mr Slaven was serving a sentence."
