Willmar man pleads guilty to crim sex

WILLMAR — Chase John Hodapp, 26, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree.

According to the criminal complaint, Hodapp had sex with a girl who was 14 years old. The incident took place Jan. 16 in Hodapp's home.

During an interview Jan. 18 with police at Rice Memorial Hospital, where the victim was taken for a sexual assault exam, the girl said she had sneaked out of her home Jan. 16 and was picked up by Hodapp and taken to his home.

The girl, Hodapp and another male spent the night talking but in the early morning hours she said Hodapp repeatedly asked her for sex.

The girl said she said "no" but eventually "relented," according to the report.

That scenario was repeated later that day before the girl left the house on her own.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 26.
