Aaron Heuer, a 29-year-old sheriff's deputy in Mille Lacs County, has been charged with four counts of first-degree sexual conduct and four counts of second-degree sexual conduct for allegedly molesting four 8-to 10-year-old boys during a fishing outing last month.

According to authorities, Heuer was working at a volunteer fishing guide for the Lutheran Island Camp in Henning, Minnesota from June 9 to June 21 when the incident occurred.

WCCO, citing the criminal complaint, reports that "a counselor met with the boys separately, and they each gave the same story -- that Heuer would touch them inappropriately and make them touch him sexually. If the boys didn't submit to this act, Heuer would push them out of the boat, said one of the boys."

Investigators believe Heuer knew all of the victims before the June incident. MPR, citing a release from the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, reports that Heuer also sexually abused two of the boys during an earlier fishing trip in Aitkin County.

Heuer has been placed on administrative leave by the Mille Lacs Count Sheriff's Department, where he worked for six years. He faces up to 30 years in prison for each of the first-degree charges.

@mitchell39 nothing is rhetorical. 


seems like my simple comment pinpointed the problem. cops are dumb, the people that hire and train cops are dumb. cops are dumb because they are "above the law" adn frequently do very dumb things. one would think it would be an honor to be cop and protect citizens of your city. cops dont see at as an honor just means to an end. the end is stupidity. 

my comments are usually perceptive and truthful, especially here

@digitalprotocol @mitchell39 Well, this is a lot more than I really wanted to say on the matter, but no. I'm just sort of put off by people who type every thought that passes through their brains into comments sections. What useful information did you think you were conveying to others with "dumb cops?" That's a rhetorical question, no need to try to answer.
