PIERRE, S.D. - Attorney General Marty Jackley confirms today that the jury trial in the State’s charges in the Gear Up case have been scheduled to begin on June 25th and the Court has changed venue. 

“I am respectful with the precautions the Court is taking to ensure all the defendants receive a fair trial. While I hoped that my request to have the jury trial begin this March in Charles Mix County would be accepted, I do appreciate that the State’s charges in the Gear Up case will move forward with the jury trial on June 25, 2018, in Minnehaha County. This is and shall remain an important case,” said Jackley.
