Sioux Falls man faces robo-call charges

Posted:



       PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says a complaint filed in Lake County accuses a Sioux Falls man of four counts of election law violations related to robo-calls made in September.
       Jackley says the allegations made by Sen. Russell Olson against 31-year-old Daniel Willard accuse Willard of making calls identifying Olson and Reps. David Lust and Brian Gosch within 60 days of the election without including the required disclaimers. All three lawmakers are Republicans.
       Willard referred questions to attorney Shawn Tornow, who said Tuesday morning that he hadn't yet seen the complaint but would likely have a response later in the day.
       The misdemeanor charges each carry a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
       An initial court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 20 in Madison.
