Blackduck man convicted of sex assaults in Red Lake
RED LAKE—A Blackduck man accused of sexually assaulting two women on the Red Lake Indian Reservation was convicted Thursday in St. Paul on two counts of sexual abuse.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Minnesota announced Friday that William Andrew Clark Sr., 66, was found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse and sexual abuse. Clark was indicted on the charges May 12. He was found guilty Thursday following a two-day trial in U.S. District Court.
Clark sexually assaulted one woman who was intoxicated and unconscious in the fall of 2013. Another woman was forcibly sexually assaulted Sept. 11, 2014, after Clark drove her to a remote part of the reservation, a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
A sentencing date has not yet been set. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Red Lake Police Department.
