RAPID CITY, SD -
The first defendant in an alleged landfill bribery case in Rapid City is going on trial.
Former landfill employee Randall Meidinger is the first of six men to go on trial in the case. The other five are the two owners of the defunct Fish Garbage Service and three of their truck drivers. They face summer trials.
Authorities allege that Fish Garbage lied about contents of trucks to defraud the city out of landfill fees. The 43-year-old Meidinger was going on trial Monday on charges of conspiracy, theft and accepting bribes.
