A 15-year-old juvenile claims that a correctional officer sexually assaulted her on several occasions while she was detained in a Northern Minnesota juvenile facility. Law enforcement recently arrested the man while he was heading to work. After his arrest, police interrogated the 23-year-old and claim that he made admissions to law enforcement during the investigation.
Law enforcement says that, at first, the man denied any involvement with the juvenile. But as investigators continued to question him, authorities say that he admitted to having given the girl a hug. Police claim that the man changed his story as time went by, including an alleged admission to having kissed the girl. He told his interrogators that the girl made an advance toward him, which he rejected, according to police. Authorities think that the man made inconsistent statements and may likely seek to use that theory against him.
