Casino Robbery Suspect To Go To Trial In March
February 6, 2012, 6:18 AM
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.
