Park Rapids Minnesota PO Box 111 56470

A 21-year-old man was charged in Wadena County District Court for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Court documents allege Shawn Lee Riski, of Eagle Bend, started talking to the girl through Facebook and later had a sexual encounter with her at the girl's relative's house.

According to the court complaint, Riski encouraged the girl to keep their encounter "on the down low" because of the age difference.

On Aug. 25, investigators spoke to Riski, who admitted the sexual contact, but said he didn't know the girl's age, court documents said. He said he knew she was underage, court records said, but only found out afterward that she is 14.

He was charged Oct. 3 with third-degree criminal sexual conduct. His first court appearance was set for Oct. 31.
