Man charged with criminal sexual conduct

A 21-year-old Farmington man faces felony criminal sexual conduct charges after reportedly receiving oral sex from an underage girl New Year's Day.

The Dakota County Sheriff's office received the sexual assault claim Jan. 12 from a home in Empire Township. According to a complaint filed last week in the Dakota County Attorney's office, Grant David Hendrickson admitted receiving oral sex from the girl, who is identified only as being younger than 13. Hendrickson also reportedly admitted touching the girl inappropriately.

If convicted on the first degree criminal sexual conduct charge Hendrickson could face up to 30 years in jail and fines of up to $40,000.
