Eau Claire (WQOW) – On Wednesday, a hearing was held for Jeffrey Smith, on whether or not he has changed and if he is no longer a sexually violent person.

Smith was convicted of the 1987 killing and rape of Susan Fahrman, and is currently on intensive supervision; Smith can’t leave his Augusta home without some sort of surveillance.

Smith wants that to change, and if the jury decides he’s no longer a sexually violent person, he can have more freedom. The seven jurors are listening to experts’ testimony about the treatments Smith has gone through.

“One thing I do like about what’s going on right now it gives the public a chance to voice their opinion. I think he still needs that connection to supervision in order for him to remain a non-violent person,” said Greg Fahrman, the victim’s brother.

There will be more testimony Thursday. The trial is scheduled through Friday.
