30 days in jail for ex-school choir director in northwestern Minnesota who sexually assaulted girl

A onetime choir director for a small school district in northwestern Minnesota was given 30 days in jail Thursday for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Richard J. Schrom, 30, of Fertile was sentenced in Todd County District Court after pleading guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection with the assault last month. As part of the plea deal, a more serious first-degree criminal sexual conduct count was dismissed.

Judge Daniel Benson chose to set aside a three-year term that would have had Schrom locked up for two years, with the balance on supervised release.
