MOORHEAD, Minn. – A former Moorhead High School hockey standout and junior league hockey draftee pleaded guilty Monday in Cass County District Court to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

Jacob Dittmer, who was 18 at the time of the incident, pleaded guilty to one count of felony third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Court documents say the girl's parents called police to report Dittmer had sneaked into their house after midnight on June 4 to have sex with the girl.

Dittmer, who was the starting goalie for the Moorhead Spuds hockey team, graduated from Moorhead High School in May.

The terms of a plea deal struck with prosecutors call in part for Dittmer to spend almost two months in jail under a stay of imposition, and serve up to five years of probation, said Brian Toay, Dittmer's attorney.

Under a stay of imposition, Dittmer won't serve that jail time unless he violates his probation.

He's also required to undergo sex offender evaluation.

Dittmer's sentencing is set for February.
