Appeals court denies new trial in sexual assault case
WILLMAR -- The State Court of Appeals has denied a new trial for a 31-year-old Willmar man convicted of sexually assaulted a 6-year-old boy.
In an unpublished opinion issued Tuesday, the appeals court ruled that there was no prosecutorial misconduct in the May 2009 jury trial of Manuel De Jesus Diaz-Orellana. Therefore, he is not entitled to a new trial.
