Stanley Weber Trial: Three Accusers Testify

Sep 25, 2019

Coverage of the Stanley Patrick Weber trial earned SDPB and Victoria Wicks a National Edward R. Murrow Award. The entry consisted of three stories. This first link takes you to the post-trial, pre-sentence feature, an eight-minute retrospective of the testimony and the facts of the case. Below this link are two spots reported while the trial was ongoing.

Tuesday, Sept. 24, was the second day of the trial against Stanley Patrick Weber, and we'll start with a warning: This story contains language necessary to tell of allegations of child sexual abuse.

Three men took the stand and testified that the former Indian Health Services pediatrician raped them when they were children. Their stories are similar: Weber first had contact with them when they were patients at the IHS clinic at Pine Ridge.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks has this report.
