Courts deal with 335 criminal cases from the Sturgis Rally


During the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally there were 335 criminal cases. How long will it take the courts to deal with all of these?

Kevin Krull, the Meade County State's Attorney, said this year's amount of criminal cases during the Rally is normal. He added some people will plead guilty right away, but other more serious cases like felonies may take longer.

The goal is to have all felony cases done by Christmas. Krull also said sometimes there are people who do not show up to court.    

"There are the people who decide not to come back and their cases, we have active warrants for some of those people that go back a number of years. Eventually they get caught and get brought in," he said.

Krull said DUI cases were the most common, and there was very little violent crime this year.
