Due to a glitch in Minnesota's automated criminal records, it was erroneously reported last week that a Park Rapids man awaiting extradition to Carver County in a sexual assault case was a convicted sex offender.


Charles Edward Hartment, 56, is technically not a convicted sex offender, said Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne, who acknowledged his office was given the same erroneous information the Enterprise reported. Hartman's conviction was vacated.
