Ottertail man accused in Internet sex case

OTTERTAIL, Minn. – Prosecutors have charged an Ottertail man with four counts of felony criminal sexual misconduct for allegedly engaging in sexual acts with a girl under the age of 13.

Authorities say 55-year-old Mark Yeo had been in sexual contact with the girl since 2009. She was in sixth grade at the time.

The investigation started after authorities stopped Yeo trying to get into Canada with information on three different kinds of date-rape drugs and teenage prostitution.

He also had text messages and photos connecting him to the young girl.
