WORTHINGTON — A string of charges that included burglary and domestic assault were dismissed earlier this month against a Worthington man.

Charged were dismissed without prejudice to the state's right to recharge against Jerry Freimuth, 31. By definition, dismissal without prejudice allows the case to be reopened. The prosecutor's motion to dismiss the charges was filed "in the interests of justice."

Freimuth was charged in May with felony first-degree burglary, interfering with a 911 emergency phone call (a gross misdemeanor), and two counts of domestic assault and fourth-degree intentional damage to property (all misdemeanors).
