Charges dropped in criminal sexual conduct case

STILLWATER — Just short of the jury trial date, a criminal sexual conduct case against a St. Paul Park man was dismissed.

Gregg Wilwert, 39, was accused of abusing a juvenile female for several months.

The case was dismissed by prosecutors May 18 under statutory rule 30.01. The alleged events could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, Washington County criminal prosecutor Fred Fink said.

The trial was scheduled for June 4.

Other charges against Wilwert for financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult were also dropped last year, after more investigation was needed.
