Pelican man gets jail for criminal sexual conduct

Mirsad Saric, 19, of Pelican Rapids, was sentenced Oct. 29 following a felony charge of criminal sexual conduct.

Local confinement will be 60 days in the county jail, according to Otter Tail County Court records. A sentence of 18 months at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud is stayed, and Saric will do community service work for an indeterminate period of time.

Saric also was ordered to attend a sex offender program and follow through with evaluation recommendations, court records show.

He must follow all instructions related to probation and will pay court fines totaling $660.

Charges stem from a July 17 incident in Pelican Rapids in which Saric sexually assaulted another individual in a vehicle and at a nearby residence.
