Charge Dismissed In Alleged Amtrak Rape; New Charges Could Be Filed

Charges were dismissed in 15th District Court on Wednesday, July 29, against an Amtrak employee who was alleged to have committed a kidnap and sexual assault onboard a passenger train that was passing through Roosevelt County in April.
Wolf Point Police arrested Charles Henry Pinner, 59, of Detroit, Mich., on April 19 following allegations that were made against Pinner. He had been charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual intercourse without consent, both felonies.
The charges were dismissed without  prejudice, meaning that charges could be refiled.
Further investigation was the reason given.
Pinner had been free on bail since July 15, when District Judge David Cybulski granted a bond reduction from $50,000 to $5,000 with a requirement that he have a GPS monitoring system before he was released, have standard conditions and to stay in contact with his attorney at all times.
