A young Rapid City mother, accused of rape, prepares to go to trial.
Kristina Hague, 20, pleaded not guilty to 4th degree rape charges in December.
Prosecutors say Hague, and her co- defendant Alexander Martinez committed the alleged rape on a child under 16 last January.
Martinez's attorneys are seeking to have the cases tried separately, as Hague may have made some incrimination statements while initially being questioned by police.
Both face 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine if convicted.
