Rape, assault charges dropped

Rape and assault charges were dropped against an Ottawa County man after the victim refused to cooperate with investigators, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

A woman told authorities Charles Andrew Cassinelli, 23, raped and beat her Feb. 25, while Cassinelli's two friends watched.

The woman told authorities Cassinelli threatened her, saying he would harm her children if she told anyone about the incident.

Multiple charges filed against Cassinelli were dropped Tuesday, said Delaware County Assistant District Attorney Rogers Hughes.

There was no DNA evidence and the woman failed to cooperate, Hughes said.

Court records show four women have taken out protective orders against Cassinelli since 2007. In three of those cases, Cassinelli was ordered to stay away from the victims for three years.

Cassinelli remained in the Delaware County jail Wednesday, with bail set at $100,000 on an unrelated charge of methamphetamine distribution. He is to return to court July 15, records show.
