Victim's family among supporters seeking new trial for Montevideo, Minn., man convicted of sex crime; they say girl is not credible witness
GRANITE FALLS -- Supporters of Steven Jon Lynn Horton, 22, of Montevideo, held picket signs Tuesday outside the Yellow Medicine County courthouse in Granite Falls to protest his recent convictions on first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.
They came also to show their support for motions filed that morning by Horton's attorney, Aaron Walton of Olivia, asking for an acquittal or a new trial. The motions claim there was insufficient evidence for the convictions.
