MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 44-year-old Ramsey man is accused of criminal sexual conduct involving several children after he mentored them through the “Big Brothers” organization in the north Twin Cities metro, according to charges filed by the Anoka County attorney.

Chad Michael Geyen was charged with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection with the case.

Geyen is accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with multiple children over the course of several years. Authorities said all of the children were 13 years old or younger at the time of the offenses.

The complaint states one case took place from November 2012 to Nov. 20, 2013. The other cases took place from 1995 to 2001.

According to the charges, Geyen met the children through his involvement with the “Big Brothers” program from about 1989 to 1993. At least one of the victims met him through the “Young Eagles Program” at the Blaine Airport as Geyen has a private pilot’s license. It’s a program for kids interested in aviation.

The complaint states Geyen engaged in criminal sexual conduct with at least four young boys. The incidents occurred at Geyen’s home and cabin, according to the charges.

If convicted on all charges, Geyen faces up to 90 years in prison and more than $100,000 in fines.

Anyone with information about the case or who knows Geyen is asked to contact the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office at (763) 427-1212.
