Former Lake George minister gets 30 years for abusing teen

Email

A former Lutheran minister from Lake George was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison for sexually assaulting a teen-aged step-daughter many times over three years.

Darwin Schauer, 71, asked for mercy from the court and made a sort of apology, said Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne, who prosecuted him in a Park Rapids, courtroom.

"I didn't take his apology as sincere," Dearstyne told the Grand Forks (N.D.) Herald Friday.
