BISMARCK, N.D. - UPDATE 8/24/2018: The case against Benjamin Goergen has been dismissed by the state.

The state says it dismissed the case because of lack of evidence.


ORIGINAL STORY 5/14/2018: A 35-year-old Mandan man has been charged with gross sexual imposition after reportedly touching a female under the age of 14.

Court documents say a relative of Benjamin Goergen contacted police saying he had inappropriate videos on his computer of a 14-year-old female.

On May 9, Bismarck police say they met with a 14-year-old girl who told them that Goergen touched her inappropriately multiple times a week when she was 11 or 12 years old.

Goergen has been charged with gross sexual imposition and his bond has been set a $10,000 and cannot have contact with the victim.
