PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A former South Dakota county prosecutor charged with rape has been ordered held without bond.
Former Walworth County State's Attorney Christopher Jansen faces three counts of rape involving a child younger than 13 in Hughes County. The 34-year-old Selby resident appeared in court Thursday in Pierre.
Jansen's attorney did not oppose the prosecution's request to hold Jansen without bond.
Jansen would face at least 45 years in prison if convicted on all three counts and could get a life sentence.
