Former Walworth Co. state's attorney charged with rape

    ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Attorney General's office says the former Walworth County state's attorney has been arrested and charged with three counts of rape.
     Thirty-four-year-old Christopher Robert Jansen of Selby has recently done court-appointed defense work in Brown County. 
     A spokeswoman for the Attorney General's office says Jansen is slated to appear in court this week. Sara Raburn says the charges stem from alleged incidents in Hughes County.
     A phone message could not be left for Jansen on Wednesday because the voice mailbox was full.
