LAKE ANDES - Criminal charges against a Delmont man accused of rape were dismissed.

Charles Mix County prosecutors recently dismissed a second-degree rape charge filed against Dennis Streyle, 28, who was accused of raping a woman on Sept. 3 in his home south of Delmont.

"Just after reviewing the evidence, I just didn't feel it was a case I could take to the jury and end up with a guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," said Deputy State's Attorney Scott Podhradsky, who dismissed the case.

Streyle was arrested on Sept. 3 and pleaded not guilty about three weeks later. Streyle was also facing a habitual offender charge, which increases the maximum penalty of other charges, because he was sentenced for attempted burglary in 2013. The habitual offender charge was dismissed, as well.
