NOBLES COUNTY — Andres Mendoza-Hernandez, 49, was sentenced earlier this week in a case of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree, where the victim was under the age of 13.

Both men received amended sentences after pleading guilty.
The July 2021 collision involved a pickup truck and semi-truck, whose driver reportedly ran a stop sign.
Victim of reported domestic assault lost consciousness twice after police arrived.

Mendoza-Hernandez was charged in July 2021 after it was reported that he had engaged in repeated sexual contact with an underage victim, between 2017 and 2018. He was charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first and second degree, as well as electronic solicitation of a child.

After entering a guilty plea, Mendoza-Hernandez was convicted on the charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and sentenced to 78 months in a correctional facility, with 366 days accredited for time served. All other charges were dismissed, as per the plea agreement.

He will also be required to pay $82 in court fees.

This is a concurrent sentence for Mendoza Hernandez, who was declared guilty in a March jury trial for a second criminal sexual conduct case and sentenced to 144 months in prison.
