Defendant in gang rape enters plea in racially tinged Iron Range case

Email News Alerts

One of four former Hibbing Community College football players accused of taking part in a 2006 gang rape of an 18-year-old Iron Range woman pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree criminal sexual conduct in exchange for a probationary sentence and a stay of adjudication.


The stay of adjudication means the conviction is never entered on the offender's record, as long as he complies with court-ordered sanctions. He also will not have to register as a sex offender.
