HURON, SD -

Jury selection has started 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.

Nearly 90 people will be called as potential jurors before lawyers narrow it down to 12.

Opening statements are scheduled for Thursday morning.
