RAPID CITY, SD -
A jury found a former Rapid City landfill employee not guilty in what prosecutors described as a scheme to defraud the city of $100,000 in landfill fees.
The jury acquitted Randall Meidinger on grand theft and forgery charges after three hours of deliberation Thursday. Meidinger's attorneys rested their case without calling any witnesses.
He was accused of helping a garbage company avoid paying landfill fees by lying about the contents and weight of garbage trucks.
Trials are pending for five others in the case.
