Lewisville Criminal Sex Court Date 20 Jun 14

A 40-year-old Lewisville man accused of sexually assaulting a young girl for several years made an appearance in Watonwan County Court on Tuesday. Bernard George Kleinschmidt Jr has been charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct over allegations that he repeatedly molested the girl over the course of around 6 years, beginning when she was 5 years old. Child pornography was also reportedly found in his home. Kleinschmidt’s bail has been set at $150,000, and in court on Tuesday the judge denied a request to lower that amount due to the severity of the crimes. Kleinschmidt is now due back in court for an omnibus hearing on July 1st.
