ROCHESTER, Minn. – A Stewartville man is pleading guilty to criminal sexual conduct with a juvenile.

Craig Dean Jech, 62, was arrested in June after the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said he inappropriately touched the victim several times on two different occasions. Authorities say Jech and his victim know each other.

Jech pleaded guilty Friday to 4th degree criminal sexual conduct, while 3rd and 4th degree counts of the same crime were dismissed. His sentencing is set for January 7.
