Waseca Man Criminal Sex 07 Apr 12

An 18-year-old Waseca man faces felony charges of 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct and assaulting a police officer in Blue Earth County Court after an incident at a party north of Beuford recently. Sheriff’s deputies were investigating the party when one reportedly discovered Uriel Morales sexually assaulting a woman in a field. He attempted to flee, and was tazered, and allegedly spit on the deputy in the process, which is what led to the assaulting an officer charge. Morales was in court on Thursday, and a motion to lower his bail was denied. It is set at $35,000 with conditions. Morales also faces misdemeanor charges of fleeing police and underage alcohol consumption.
