Pikus faces felony charges for having sex with 15-year-old

Trent John Pikus, a 19-year-old Aitkin man, has been charged by Morrison County Attorney Brian Middendorf, with criminal sexual conduct in the third degree.

Pikus allegedly admitted to law enforcement that he had intercourse with the 15-year-old in a car parked in Little Falls on one occasion.

The victim’s mother initially reported the conduct to law enforcement June 1, after she discovered inappropriate photos from Pikus on the victim’s cell phone.

The victim allegedly told officers Pikus had sexual relations with her on three occasions and said Pikus had told her he would be in big trouble because she was 15 and he was 19.

If found guilty, Pikus faces a maximum penalty of 15 years imprisonment and/or a $30,000 fine.
