Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – An Oronoco man has been charged in a child sex-related case.

One count of 2nd-degree criminal sexual conduct has been filed against 73-year-old Robert Baier.

Although he is facing just one count, the criminal complaint alleges the abuse of a young girl occurred multiple times. The girl told an investigator the abuse began when she was 8 or 9-years-old and that Baier “regularly sexually molested her” from 2009 to 2011.

The complaint says the abuse took place while Baier lived in Rochester.

Baier has been ordered back to court for an evidentiary hearing in July.
