A 43-year-old preschool teacher told a Dunn County jury Monday that a Duluth doctor sexually violated her on a boat at Barker's Island Marina in 2006.


It was the first day in the trial of Dr. Javier De La Garza, who is charged with third-degree sexual assault for allegedly having sexual intercourse with the teacher without her consent. The woman said she was a patient of De La Garza and she invited him to her parents' boat after he said he would like to see it.
