Preliminary hearing waived for man charged with GSI

BISMARCK, N.D. - A man charged with raping a minor more than 10 years ago has waived his preliminary hearing.

The affidavit says 28-year-old Nicholas Reindel is accused of taking advantage of a then 14-year-old girl in 2008 in Bismarck.

Documents say the sexual assault resulted in the birth of a child.

The affidavit says Reindel admitted to the incident and being the child’s father.

Since Reindel’s hearing was waived he hasn’t pleaded guilty or not guilty in court yet.

A judge hasn’t set his next hearing.
