Swanville man charged with criminal sexual conduct

A Swanville man has been charged in Morrison County Court, with first degree criminal sexual conduct, for engaging in sexual contact with a 6-year-old.

Jason Dewayne Kirk, 32, was arrested Jan. 11 and is being held in the Morrison County Jail, after Social Services reported a possible incident with the 6-year-old that took place Jan. 5.

A Social Services investigator, assisted by a Morrison County Sheriff’s deputy, interviewed the child, who told them of the incident when the child had been at Kirk’s home.

The criminal complaint said Kirk admitted he showed the child a pornographic movie on his computer and then had sexual contact with the child.

If found guilty, Kirk faces a maximum penalty of 30 years imprisonment and/or a $40,000 fine.
