WALKER — A 50-year-old Outing man was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct in Cass County District Court.
Judge David Harrington committed Roger Lynn Knode to the Commissioner of Corrections immediately and ordered him to pay a $10,500 fine. Knode also will be on supervised program for 10 years and must register as a predatory offender.
The charges arose from an April complaint alleging sexual contact with a person under age 13.
Knode, who has been convicted of criminal sexual conduct on two previous occasions, also will be reviewed for civil commitment as a sexually dangerous or sexual psychopathic personality person.
