The former Walworth County State’s Attorney is facing child rape charges.
Authorities have charged 34-year-old Christopher Jansen of Selby with three counts of first-degree rape. A citation on file in Jansen’s case shows that Jansen’s crimes were committed against children under the age of 13 years old.
Documents also show that Jansen was arrested by a Division of Criminal Investigation Agent Tuesday afternoon in Blunt, South Dakota.
Jansen faces three different charges because there are three separate child victims in this case.
Jansen is scheduled to appear in court at 1:15 p.m. Thursday in Pierre.
