Rape Trial For SD Bar Owner To Stay In Huron

Rape Trial For SD Bar Owner To Stay In Huron
Werner Fajardo

HURON, SD -

A South Dakota judge has ruled that a trial for a South Dakota bar owner accused of raping a 12-year-old girl and two 14-year-olds after serving them booze will remain in Huron.

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 and his trial is scheduled for Aug. 15.

Fajardo's defense lawyer argued for a change of venue, saying she was concerned about potential jurors' views on race.

But Judge Jon Erickson denied the motion Tuesday to change the venue. Erickson also ruled that no video would be allowed during the trial. He has yet to decide on whether audio will be allowed.
