Grain Company Owner Convicted of Raping, Kidnapping
Richard Seidel, owner, Bison Grain Company in South Dakota, faces life in prison
A 57-year-old Bison, SD, man was convicted recently of beating, choking, kidnapping and raping a family member and is in jail awaiting a sentence that could mean life in prison, reports The Daily Republic.
Richard Seidel, the owner and manager of the large Bison Grain Company in Bison, had been free on $1 million cash bond on the charges laid in November 2017 by Perkins County State’s Attorney Shane Penfield based on a grand jury’s indictment.
After deliberating about three hours, the jury found Seidel guilty of four counts. Seidel is in the Meade County Jail in Sturgis until his sentencing, slated for early November.
