Fifth child accuses former deputy of molestation

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. - Authorities here have charged a former Mille Lacs County deputy with two new felony counts of molesting a child, the fifth child he is charged with sexually abusing.

Aaron Joseph Heuer, of Isle, was charged Monday in Otter Tail County District Court with one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13, and one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13.

Jill Oliveira, spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, said the alleged incidents happened in May and June 2009 with a boy who was then 9 years old, both at Heuer's home and at Lutheran Island Camp in Henning in Otter Tail County.

According to court documents filed with the charges, the boy's mother, who is a friend of Heuer's, saw a TV news report about the prior child sex charges filed against Heuer. She asked her son if anything had happened during their time together.

He responded, "What do you think, the same thing that happened to the other kids."

In July, Heuer was charged with molesting four boys ages 8 to 10 when he was volunteering at the camp in Henning and two of the boys on a separate fishing trip in Aitkin County.
