CASS LAKE, Minn. (AP) — A former northern Minnesota school superintendent accused of fondling a teenage boy has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.
The Bemidji Pioneer reports 65-year-old Carl Remmers of Cass Lake pleaded guilty last week to gross misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct. The charge was amended from serious felony criminal sexual conduct.
Remmers is former superintendent of the Cass Lake-Bena School District. According to the complaint, a 17-year-old boy said he had been inappropriately touched by Remmers while he was in Remmers’ office in the Alternative Learning Center in Cass Lake.
Sentencing is scheduled for April 4.
