Twin Falls Man Accused of Rape Heads to Trial

Latah County Sheriffs Office

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho judge has ruled that a 20-year-old Twin Falls man police say raped an 18-year-old University of Idaho freshman must face trial. The Lewiston Tribune reports that Latah County Magistrate John Judge at a preliminary hearing on Thursday ruled there is probable cause in ordering Jesse Vierstra to stand trial. Judge also rejected a defense motion to reduce Vierstra’s bond from $125,000 to $5,000. The 18-year-old woman testified she was a virgin before the alleged attack. Judge in making his ruling says that what he heard in court can only be described as predatory.
