SD Woman Accused Of Rape To Get 2nd Evaluation

SD Woman Accused Of Rape To Get 2nd Evaluation
April Solles


The attorney for a Rapid City woman accused of raping a 14-year-old boy and videotaping the alleged sex acts says April Solles isn't competent to stand trial.

Defense attorney Paul Winter on Monday asked Judge Jeff Davis to schedule a competency hearing based on the results of an psychologist's evaluation. Davis ordered a second opinion.

The second evaluation will be done at the state Human Services Center in Yankton.

Solles has pleaded not guilty to rape, sexual contact with a child under 16 and possession of child pornography.

The case started unfolding late last year when Solles' 1-year-old girl died of a head injury. A 14-year-old boy was charged with murder in juvenile court but authorities would not say if he was the same boy in the alleged rape case.
