Warrant issued for man charged with sex crimes

Daniel Kevin Finn, 48, of 39544 Oxbow Road, Waubun has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and gross misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct.

On March 29, Finn went to Oxbow Resort on Elbow Lake in Becker County with two young men, ages 18 and 19, after enlisting their help in unloading furniture, according to court records.

They first went to Brainerd to pick up the furniture. Finn allegedly purchased beer and hard liquor there as well.

Upon arriving at Oxbow, it was too late to unload, so they stayed overnight.

The three played drinking games ands the two younger men became extremely intoxicated, according to court records.

After they went to bed, partially clothed, Finn allegedly rubbed the back, legs and groin area of the 19-year-old while he was passed out, and reached over and touched the sexual area of the 18-year-old through his clothing, according to court records.

The 18-year-old was frightened and didn't know what to do, so he feigned sleep, and when Finn left the room he woke up the 19-year-old, told him what happened and they left the resort unobserved.

A warrant was issued for Finn Thursday by District Judge Mark Hansen.
