Interview Jury Didn't See In Dierks Case
July 6, 2009, 4:46 PM
It's an interview jurors in the Amy Dierks assault trial didn't get to see. Last week, the group of eight women and four men found the former Sioux Falls day care provider not guilty of hurting Henry Johnson, who was just six months old in November 2007.
Just hours after a lethargic baby Henry was brought to a Sioux Falls emergency room, Dierks was interviewed by Minnehaha County Detective Phil Toft. A year after the crime, Judge Bradley Zell ruled the interview couldn't be used in court. But now that the trial is over, the evidence is no longer sealed.
Later on KELOLAND News at 6, you'll get a first-time look at the interview process.
