Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

Attorneys for Frazee hog farmer Robert Briard have filed a motion for change of venue in his criminal sexual conduct case.

But he is still charged with felony second-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a girl under the age of 13. That incident is alleged to have occurred in the summer of 2004.
