Address correction for sentenced Dalton man

Wesley Allen Lauinger, 19, Dalton, Minn., was sentenced for gross misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct.

His address was incorrectly listed as 1227 Kenneth St., Detroit Lakes in an earlier court story. He has lived in Dalton since last autumn.

On June 14 a police officer was called to St. Mary's emergency room on report of a possible sexual assault.

Lauinger admitted to the officer that he and a girl more than 24 months younger than him had engaged in sexual penetration twice in June.

On Monday, District Judge Peter Irvine sentenced him to a year in jail, all but 30 days stayed for two years.
