A 19-year-old Minnesota man was put on 10 years of probation for an incident in which he “penis slapped” his high school teammates and exposed himself to 11- and 12-year-old boys.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported on Tuesday that Seth Kellen is also likely to be sentenced to 30 days in jail after admitting to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct stemming from a March 2012 incident in which he “digitally penetrated” a teammate on the Browerville High School basketball team. He was also accused of pulling his pants down in an elevator in front of teammates and an 11-year-old and a 12-year-old student managers, then hitting his teammates in the back with his penis.
Todd County District Attorney Chuck Rasmussen said the charges will be dropped if Kellen complies with his probation and attends anger management courses, as well as counseling regarding sexual boundaries.
