Plea Entered On Child Sex Charge
John Bjerkaas is convicted of second-degree sexual assault, after entering an Alford plea...where he doesn't actually admit to a crime, but says there is evidence against him. Bjerkaas was supposed to go on trial for two more serious charges. He was charged in November with touching private parts of the 12-year-old victim, while she pretended to be asleep. Bjerkaas previously served probation for possessing child porn.
