Man pleads to sex charge for molesting girls

WILLMAR -- Jesus Cisneros Trevino, 63, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Thursday to a first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge for sexual contact with two young girls.

As part of a plea agreement reached in Kandiyohi County District Court, Trevino will be sentenced to six to 12 months of local jail time and will agree to comply with all laws, including federal immigration laws.

He will be sentenced Nov. 19.

The first-degree charge, along with another second-degree count for criminal sexual conduct, was filed after Willmar police began investigating a sexual assault case in January that involved two girls, ages 11 and 16. The younger girl told investigators that Trevino had sexual contact with her between 20 and 30 times, with the abuse ending in late summer of 2011. The girl said the contact, involving sexual touching and indecent exposure, happened at an apartment in Willmar.

The girl reported that she had told the older girl about the sexual assaults. The older girl said she believed the younger's account because Trevino had done similar things to her, when she was in the same age range, at another residence in Willmar.
