Dickinson man pleads guilty to sex charges

DICKINSON, N.D. — A 25-year-old Dickinson man has pleaded guilty to having sexual contact with a female who was under 15 at the time of the incident.

Stark County Assistant State's Attorney Jim Hope tells the Dickinson Press (http://bit.ly/17xiYBL) that David Blinn agreed to plead guilty to the charge and two others as long as the state capped his punishment at 20 years imprisonment with eight years suspended.

Blinn was also charged last year with two counts of corruption of a minor. That complaint alleges that Blinn had sexual contact with a minor female who was 15 years of age or older in two separate incidents.

In both cases, Blinn was more than 22 years old at the time the crimes were committed.
