Roberts County sheriff-elect pleads not guilty to assault
ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — The sheriff-elect of Roberts County has pleaded not guilty to assault charges.
Twenty-eight-year-old Korey Ware, of Sisseton, is accused of assaulting a 30-year-old man at or near an Aberdeen bar on Oct. 6.
The American News reports that he entered his pleas Wednesday. Trial is scheduled for early February.
Ware defeated Tim Farmen in the Republican primary for Roberts County sheriff in June and ran unopposed in the November general election. He faces alternative misdemeanor and felony charges. A felony conviction could affect his ability to serve as sheriff.
