MILACA, Minn. - Details emerged Wednesday in the child sex abuse case involving a Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Deputy. Aaron Joseph Heuer, 29, of Isle, is charged with eight counts of criminal sexual conduct involving four boys.

Heuer is alleged to have coerced the youths into performing oral sex on him, while they were on a boat near the Lutheran Island Camp in Henning in June.

Court documents indicate that Heuer threatened to toss the boys out of the boat if they did not comply with his demands. All four complied.

He then allegedly showed the boys pornographic images on his cellphone and also masturbated in front of the boys, telling them that the "stuff" that came out was what "made babies."

Heuer was taken into custody in Otter Tail County and was jailed in Fergus Falls. He was charged on Tuesday.

Heuer lives on the Mille Lacs Lake shore just north of Isle, but persons at the house would not comment on Wednesday.

Heuer was the liason officer for Onamia schools. He is now on paid administrative leave from the Sheriff's Department. Sheriff Brent Lindgren had no comment on Wednesday. Onamia Schools Superintendent John Varner did not return calls.

Residents of Onamia are still reeling from revelations of sexual misconduct involving a teacher in the High School. Adam Lee, 33, pleaded guilty in June to having sex with a 17 year old female student and soliciting sex from a 13-year old. Lee is to be sentenced in September 27th

He faces the possibility of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.

Former Mille Lacs County deputy Aaron Joseph Heuer was sentenced to 33 years in prison on Thursday, May 8, for sexually assaulting children on fishing trips in Otter Tail County while volunteering at Lutheran Island Camp in Henning.

According to the criminal complaint, Heuer sexually assaulted children while volunteering as a fishing guide and inappropriately touching boys ages 8 to 10.

Heuer, 30, of Isle, pleaded guilty on March 21, to four counts of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct and a charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

In addition, Heuer also pleaded guilty to a charge in Mille Lacs County. The Mille Lacs case was conflicted out to Stearns County. According to Stearns County Assistant Attorney Michael Lieberg, charges were filed in Mille Lacs County, and about a month ago Heuer appeared in Mille Lacs County District Court, for his first appearance. No testimony was given. “The process allows you to move the case to another county,” Lieberg said. The case was moved to Otter Tail County where Heuer had agreed to plead guilty to the Mille Lacs County charges when he was sentenced.

Aitkin County has also investigated incidents between Heuer and children. According to James Ratz, Aitkin County attorney, the Aitkin County investigation was wrapped into the Otter Tail County plea

agreement. Aitkin will not prosecute, but he said the parents of the victims are satisfied with the results.

Heuer was sentenced to 360 months for the Mille Lacs incident which will run concurrently with the 396 months he was sentenced to in Otter Tail County.

Heuer must serve 22 years before he is eligible for a lifetime conditional release. He also must register as a predatory offender.
