WINDOM — A Windom man was charged with fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct for contact with a victim who was mentally impaired, a felony offense. Jeffery Allen Holey, 44, also faces one count of fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct for nonconsensual sexual contact, a gross misdemeanor offense.

On April 20, a Windom Police Department investigator spoke to a Blue Earth County Human Services Adult Protection Social Worker who had received a report of abuse involving a vulnerable adult. According to the report, the victim had disclosed in therapy that Holey had touched her inappropriately and without the victim’s consent. The victim also stated that Holey had sent nude pictures of himself to the victim.

On April 25, the victim completed a forensic interview detailing the reported assault. The victim stated the assault had occurred while staying in a hotel with Holey and the victim’s mother and that Holey reportedly put his hands under the victim’s shirt and attempted to pull down her pants while the victim’s mother was gone from the room.

The victim had previously informed Holey she did not want a sexual relationship with him and asked that he stop sending her “nasty photos” via text, according to the report.

The victim’s mother, who had a relationship with Holey, also stated that he had requested on multiple occasions to have sex with both of them. These requests reportedly became more persistent after the incident at the hotel.
