Red Wing man gets year in jail for sexual assault

RED WING — A Red Wing man convicted of sexually assaulting a minor was ordered Friday to serve a year in jail but had a 12-year prison term stayed.

Jesus Urzua-Contla, 26, was charged in February with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct-penetration and two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

He pleaded guilty in May to one of the first-degree counts; in exchange for the plea, the rest of the charges were dismissed.

Goodhue County District Court Judge Lawrence Clark sentenced Urzua-Contla to 144 months in prison, stayed for 30 years, ordered him to undergo a psychological-sexual evaluation and register as a predatory offender.

Urzua-Contla was given credit for 144 days served toward the year in jail.


According to the criminal complaint, the girl, who is younger than 13, told authorities the assaults began in 2011 and happened multiple times, always at the victim's home. She said she didn't tell anyone sooner because Urzua-Contla had made threats of violence toward her and has physically assaulted her mother, the complaint says.

The mother confirmed the physical abuse against her, the complaint says.
