A Rapid City jury heard opening statements Monday, Dec. 4, in a criminal trial on allegations of abuse that left an infant brain-damaged, deaf, and blind. Patrick White Face is charged with breaking his six-week-old daughter's leg and then, four days later, causing other injuries. But the defense attorney says the child's physical symptoms are consistent with illness and do not point to abuse.
