DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - A jury has convicted a northern Minnesota prosecutor of sexual misconduct involving a 17-year-old girl.
The jury in Duluth on Friday found Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell guilty on two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The girl's family sought a restraining order against Scannell in 2012. The parents say Scannell was a longtime family friend.
Scannell became a public figure after he was shot multiple times at the Grand Marais courthouse in December 2011 by a man he'd successfully prosecuted.
