Criminal complaint filed against Rock County deputy

LUVERNE -- A Rock County Sheriff's deputy remains on suspension as a criminal complaint has now been filed.

Deputy Kyle Kreun was placed on administrative leave Dec. 30, after allegations were presented that the 28-year-old Kreun was involved in a sexual relationship with a minor female who, at the time was 16 years old.

The Rock County Attorney's office issued a press release Wednesday stating they acknowledge the filing of the criminal complaint against Kreun.

"This office earlier transferred any criminal proceedings in this case to the Murray County Attorney's Office to avoid any potential conflict of interest, and to ensure that any criminal and/or civil proceedings in this case were pursued independently of each other to protect the rights of all involved," the release states. "These are two statutorily separate and distinct proceedings and one process does not influence the other."

Civil proceedings against Kreun continue to move forward.
