JEFFERSON — Trial for a Watertown man accused of numerous violent crimes — including armed bank robbery and carjacking in Helenville in 2016 — began Tuesday.

Richard T. Hall’s attorney told Jefferson County Circuit Court jurors that the state’s DNA and other evidence won’t be sufficient for them to convict Hall, 43. Hall has been held in the Jefferson County Jail pending trial.
