Sisseton man pleads guilty to sex, alcohol charges in Cass CourtFARGO – A Sisseton, S.D., man pleaded guilty in Cass County District Court today to a felony charge of gross sexual imposition and a misdemeanor charge of providing alcohol to a minor.
David Gunderson, who is either 24 or 23, entered his guilty plea to the felony charge in the form of an Alford plea, meaning he did not admit to the charge but agreed there was a likelihood a jury would convict him based on the evidence.
According to information provided by the prosecutor during a hearing Wednesday:
Gunderson gave a 17-year-old girl alcohol and after falling asleep the girl awoke to find Gunderson committing sexual acts on her.
Gunderson will be sentenced after a pre-sentence investigation is completed.
