Judge dismisses defense motions -- Virginia Briard trial set for September
A trial has been set for Sept. 22 in Becker County District Court for Virginia Juanita Briard, 63, of 38501 County Road 56, Frazee, after a judge rejected defense motions to dismiss six felony counts of contempt of court.
She is accused of going on the run to avoid testifying, and was charged with one count for each day in December she failed to appear at the criminal sexual conduct trial of her husband, Robert Briard.
