A jury of ten women and three men has been selected for the trial of a South Dakota bar owner accused of raping a 12-year-old girl and two 14-year-olds after serving them booze.
The jury of 12 jurors plus one alternate was selected Wednesday afternoon in the trial of 35-year-old Werner Fajardo. Prosecutors allege Fajardo provided alcohol to the three girls at his El Cuervo bar in Huron and assaulted them. He's pleaded not guilty.
Opening statements are scheduled for Thursday morning.
