A former South Dakota legislator (photo: right) has been arrested.
Republican Ted Klaudt faces several charges including stalking and second degree rape. Klaudt is charged with eight counts of second degree rape, two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of sexual contact with a child under 16, two counts of tampering with a witness, and one count of stalking.
Klaudt turned himself in this morning to the sheriff's department in McIntosh. These cases are being prosecuted by the Corson County States Attorney, the Hughes County States Attorney, with the Attorney General’s Office assisting.
From Klaudt’s voting history, to reaction from his former constituents and the state, our news crews are working to cover all angles of this developing story.
I reckon he 'turned himself in,' alrightee. Where was he gonna hide that shape? And there was NO FUUKIN WAY he could get far fleeing on foot. The story doesn't report whether he's (was) married or not. Whaddaya think*?
(*he IS, with one child)
