19yo Caylen Robert Blume of Mapleton has been charged with four felony counts of third–degree criminal sexual conduct in Blue Earth County Court.
Authorities began investigating Blume in February of this year after the father of a 15–year–old girl reported that his daughter had been sexually assaulted by Blume, who was 18 at the time.
The father also indicated that his daughter is disabled, and has an IQ of 62.
The victim‘s father believes that the sexual activity was forced and not consensual.
In a forensic interview, the victim stated that Blume had abused her on multiple occasions before ceasing communication with her.
A witness was also able to confirm that the victim had disclosed the details of the sexual abuse with her.
Blume has been summoned to appear in court in response to the charges.
