Stanley Weber Trial Testimony Ends

Testimony has ended in the federal trial of Stanley Patrick Weber, the former IHS pediatrician accused of sexually assaulting Native boys at Pine Ridge. The trial started Monday, Sept. 23, in Rapid City.

Seven witnesses testified that Weber raped them or made sexual contact with them when they were under the age of 16, going as far back as 1995. All of them are now grown men. Weber is charged with crimes in South Dakota against only four of them.

Weber has chosen not to testify.

Jurors heard instructions at the beginning of the trial, and on Friday will hear supplemental instructions to address situations that arose during the four days of trial.

After that, government prosecutors and defense attorneys will give closing arguments, and the jury will go off to deliberate.
