A local man was sentenced last week to spend 90 days in jail for fourth-degree rape of a minor and possession of marijuana.

Dymen Garcia, 19, of Mitchell, appeared in court April 22 at the Davison County Public Safety Center in Mitchell and was sentenced to five years in prison, suspended to 90 days in jail with credit for 30 days served, for fourth-degree rape of a person between 13 and 16 years old, a class 3 felony.

Garcia pleaded guilty on Jan. 26. The charge stems from an Aug. 21 incident in which Garcia had sex with 14-year-old girl in a vehicle on Second Avenue in Mitchell.

A charge of contributing to abuse, neglect or delinquency was dismissed, and he was placed on probation for four years.

In a separate case, Garcia was sentenced to two years in prison, suspended to 90 days in jail with credit for 30 days served, for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, a Class 6 felony, to which he pleaded guilty on April 19. The sentence will run concurrently - at the same time - with the rape sentence.

The marijuana charge stems from an incident on Jan. 26 when Garcia ran from law enforcement, court documents state, which led to a search of Garcia's home on Fourth Avenue in Mitchell, where police found the marijuana.

Charges of ingestion of opiates, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed.
