Frazee man charged with criminal sexual conduct

Patrick John Furey, 55, of rural Frazee has been charged in Becker County District Court with two counts of felony second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

According to court records, he allegedly took a number of nude photos of a teenage girl in 2011 and 2012, and touched her private parts. He allegedly denied it to investigators, but later told a third party that he lied to the police and had taken the photos. He has moved to the Alaska area and is considered a no-show risk by prosecutors.

On May 6, District Judge Peter Irvine granted the state's request and issued a warrant for Furey's arrest.
