The two cases are actually being heard separately.
The father, 55-year-old Craig Allen Olson of Canton, SD and his daughter, 32-year-old Oriana Ti Groppetti of Visalia, California are accused of trapping Groppetti’s husband in a grain bin. He escaped and was walking to another location when his wife allegedly picked him up and took him to another grain bin where the Sheriff says the victim was held again. He then escaped and called 9-1-1.
Both defendants were arraigned and filed written pleas of not guilty; Groppetti on Monday, September 8th, and Olson on Friday, September 12th.
Groppetti’s attorney has requested a change of venue in the case. A hearing has been set for Friday, September 26th at 1 PM, with a pretrial conference to happen on Friday, October 10. At this point the trial for Groppetti is scheduled for Tuesday, October 14th in the Lyon County Courthouse in Rock Rapids, however that may change depending on how the judge decides on the change of venue request.
A pretrial conference in Olson’s case will also be on October 10 and his trial is scheduled for the same day as Groppetti’s, on Tuesday, October 14th.
