Sentence for Sioux Falls Man Convicted of Rape
HURON, S.D. (AP) – Sentencing has been set for a South Dakota bar owner convicted of raping three girls after serving them alcohol.
A Sioux Falls radio station reports that Werner Fajardo, of Sioux Falls, could face life in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 6. The 35-year-old owner of the former El Cuervo bar in Huron was found guilty in August of assaulting a 12-year-old girl and two 14-year-olds at the bar late last year.
The El Cuervo closed after state regulators revoked Fajardo’s liquor license in January.
