Court Appearance Scheduled For Man Accused Of Rape

The former Walworth County State's Attorney is expected to appear in court Thursday afternoon on child rape charges.

Three counts of first degree rape were filed against 34-year-old Christopher Jansen on Wednesday.  Court paperwork shows Jansen is accused of committing three acts of first degree rape against three child victims under the age of 13 years old in the Blunt area.
