Cass County administrator pleads not guilty in domestic assault
Berndt, 53, of Moorhead, pleaded through his defense attorney, Lisa Borgen. He did not appear in person at Tuesday morning’s arraignment.
A police report says a Moorhead school resource officer at Horizon Middle School was contacted Feb. 4 by a person who was required to report any physical assault on a minor.
Police said the assault on the minor happened overnight on Feb. 1 and 2.
Borgen previously told The Forum Berndt had received a ticket in the mail in the matter.
She declined to speak with The Forum after the hearing.
