Former Walworth County prosecutor charged with 3 counts of rape

ABERDEEN (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.

The Aberdeen American News reports that 34-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.
