Charges dropped against man accused of threatening rape during call

Charges were dropped Wednesday against a Montana man accused of threatening to rape the wives of a Spokane County sheriff’s detective and a deputy prosecutor. He made the threat during phone calls he knew were recorded at the Spokane County Jail.

Veilleux, 30, was accused of shooting a man outside the Oasis Tavern on Feb. 24, 2012, and Riley was charged with helping him flee.
