Lengthy Criminal History For Kryger

Lengthy Criminal History For Kryger

Christopher Kryger has been inside a courtroom before. His criminal past dates back to 1992 when he was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. Since then, his rap sheet details 14 crimes that include aggravated assault, arson and theft. After serving time in prison, he was released on parole.

Yet, his life of crime didn't end there. In 2008, he was arrested again. This time, the charges were rape, kidnapping and assault involving a 22-year-old Sioux Falls woman. He was charged in December, but in March of 2009, the charges were dismissed because DNA didn't connect him to the crime and Kryger was released from jail.

A year later, Kryger was back in court, charged with simple assault and violating a protection order. He pleaded guilty to those charges, but he was on the streets again in 2010.

This time the charges of murder and rape against Kryger are supported by DNA evidence collected from a rape kit. According to court papers, the DNA collected from the victim and Kryger's DNA were matched at the DCI crime lab in Pierre. The DNA match is what led to Kryger's arrest last Friday.
