Jury Selection Starts In Rape Trial

August 15, 2012, 5:09 AM

Jury Selection Starts In Rape Trial
Werner Fajardo | Nov. 2011

HURON, SD -

Jury selection starts Wednesday in 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.

Prosecutors allege 35-year-old Werner Fajardo provided alcohol to the three girls at his El Cuervo bar in Huron and assaulted them. He's pleaded not guilty.

Fajardo's defense lawyer had argued for a change of venue, saying she was concerned about potential jurors' views on race. But Judge Jon Erickson denied the motion to move the trial.

Erickson also ruled that news organizations will not be able to use TV cameras or audio recording devices in the courtroom during the trial.
