Sentencing set for Huron bar owner 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.
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.
