Inver Grove Heights Man Pleads Guilty in Stearns County Sex Sting
ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- Another Minnesota man has pleaded guilty in a Stearns County child sex sting.
Fifty-nine-year-old Randy Micke of Inver Grove Heights was charged with two felony counts involving sex and each involving a child. Micke pleaded guilty to describing sexual conduct with a child through electronic communication.
According to the complaint, Micke made contact with an investigator from the Central Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force who was posing as a 14-year-old girl in an online chat room. Court records allege Micke almost immediately began asking sexually explicit questions. The chats continued with Micke allegedly sending the girl a pornographic video of a younger girl with an older man.
Micke told authorities he had been chatting with a 14-year-old girl but would never meet up with someone that young. Records show he denied sending a video but admitted to sending a link to the video.
Micke will be sentenced in October.
