STORM LAKE, Iowa (KCAU) – A charge of sexual abuse against a man in Storm Lake has been dismissed.
Court documents show that the state moved to dismiss the charge against Duron McNeal, 20 of Litchfield, Arizona, in late April after the prosecution found it was not justified due to “the sufficiency or insufficiency of admissible evidence, the age, criminal history and background of the accused, and the impact of the crime and its prosecution upon the accused and the community.”
McNeal had been arrested in February after the Storm Lake Police Department conducted an investigation of an alleged rape in May of 2019.
Costs for the court have been assigned to the state
