RAPID CITY, S.D. - Testimony given in a Rapid City courtroom Tuesday indicates that a Rapid City woman is competent to stand trial on multiple charges of rape, sexual contact with a child under 16 and pornography.
That testimony came from a psychologist from the Human Services Center in Yankton who evaluated April Solles.
Deputy State's Attorney Tracy Decker says they ran out of time in court Tuesday to hear testimony from the defense's doctor, but the defense said at this point they agree with the psychologist from Yankton. Another court date has not yet been set.
Solles faces 10 years in prison for each child pornography and sexual contact count against her. The case first came to attention when Solles' baby daughter died under suspicious circumstances involving a teenage boy. Further investigation revealed there was a possible sexual relationship between her and the boy.
