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.

    What a HUGE creeper. He better serve some time. Prison maybe a Candy store to him!!

  3. Dave Seavy says:

    The worst part is that he probably won’t do much time; gross-mis carries a lot less time than felony-level CSC. I wonder who he paid off to get the felony reduced. That’s one plea bargain that shouldn’t have been made.

    he used his position and abused a 17 year old in his office sexually…how the hell is that not a felony…if he’d kicked his dog in the hind end…then it would be?…yikes…no justice,man
