Casino Robbery Suspect To Go To Trial In March

RAPID CITY, SD


A Rapid City woman accused of using a knife and a machete in two casino robbery attempts is to stand trial in about a month.


Defense attorney Jeremiah Davis says he and prosecutors have been unable to reach a plea agreement. Trial for 26-year-old Julia Peters is set for March 7-8.

Peters has pleaded not guilty to robbing the Market Square Casino and trying to rob the Happy Jacks last July. Authorities allege that Peters tried to rob the casinos in a four-day span, then dyed her hair to try to elude capture. She was arrested later that month.

Peters could face more than 57 years in prison if convicted.
