Levon Dean won't stand trial for the assault and robbery of another man after all. Court documents show all charges in the April incident, in Sioux City's Leeds neighborhood, were dismissed in Woodbury County District Court.
According to the documents, the charges were dropped because he is being charged in federal court for offenses connected to the incident.
Dean was charged with first-degree robbery, burglary, theft and assault in connection with the incident where police say Dean and his brother, Jamal, beat and robbed a man at gun point.
Levon Dean was then charged a few days later after he and his brother allegedly entered a room at the Palmer House Motel demanding money and drugs from another man.
Court documents show the two men stole his cell phone and his car. Levon Dean will go on trial in that case in October.
In the meantime, the United States Attorney's Northern District of Iowa office tells us the office cannot comment at this time about the existence or non-existence of criminal charges in connection to the incident in Leeds.
