St Peter MN November 8 2019
A Mankato woman who worked as a security guard at the Minnesota Sex Offender Treatment Program in St. Peter was sentenced Tuesday.
Court records show Claudia Kogo, 57, was sentenced to 15 days in jail, five years of supervised probation and a sentence to service term of 15 days for six months, which can be served as 120 hours of community service within six months.
Kogo had been charged with third-degree and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, but pleaded guilty to the fourth-degree charge, for which she was convicted. The third-degree charge was dismissed.
Authorities said a patient who was committed as a sexually dangerous person reported that he had sex with Kogo more than two dozen times in late 2017. Kogo allegedly told a state investigator she kissed and groped the patient but denied having sex with him.
She no longer works at the facility, a Minnesota Department of Human Services spokesman said in August.
