Rochester Woman Admits to Child Sex Abuse Charge
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester woman pleaded guilty Friday in a child sex abuse case.
Court records show 32-year-old Amanda Diaz admitted to a second-degree criminal sexual conduct charge using a Norgaard plea. It is expected that two other charges, first-degree criminal sexual conduct and first-degree burglary, will be dropped in exchange for the guilty plea.
Diaz was accused of entering an apartment in the early hours of New Years Day and 2019 and molesting a boy under the age of 13. The criminal complaint says the boy told his mother what had happened when she returned home later that night. The mother's boyfriend was in the apartment but was sleeping when the crime occurred.
The Norgaard plea means Diaz admits guilt but does not remember her actions because of intoxication. She is scheduled to be sentenced on December 3rd.
