Frazee man accused of sex crime

Austin David Wokasch, 19, of rural Frazee has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

According to court records, on Oct. 23, the Becker County Sheriff's Office was informed of a possible sexual assault involving a juvenile. A 13-year-old girl told investigators that three days earlier, she and two males were hanging out in a camper in Becker County. She said she had intercourse and other sexual contact with both males, one of whom was Wokasch. He allegedly admitted having both intercourse and other sexual contact with the girl, and said he had heard she was 13, but thought she was really 15 years old.

On Feb. 26, District Judge Gretchen Thilmony issued a summons for Wokasch to appear in court on March 19.
