BISMARCK, ND -
Prosecutors in North Dakota have dismissed state charges against a Bismarck man accused of having sex with a South Dakota girl because he's been sentenced in federal court.
A Burleigh County judge granted the request to drop luring and other felony charges against 41-year-old Quentin Doerr.
Doerr was sentenced in Aberdeen, S.D., to five years in prison on federal charges stemming from the same crime.
He pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography and was sentenced in August.
Doerr was scheduled to stand trial on the North Dakota charges Wednesday but a judge dismissed the case Tuesday.
According to an affidavit, Doerr told an investigator he met the girl online, knew she was 16 and drove to Redfield, S.D., and had sex with her.
