County issues warrant after no show in court
The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for the arrest of 21-year-old Andrew William Alich after he failed to show up for his hearing on May 6 related to two charges of soliciting a minor to engage in sexual conduct.
The Detroit Lakes man admitted to police that he asked a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him via an electronic conversation in October 2012, according to the criminal complaint.
Farmington Police retrieved the conversation from the Farmington minor where Alich asks the child to have sex with him or send a nude photo in order to have him contact a mutual acquaintance for her.
Alich faces two counts of solicitation of a minor to engage in sexual conduct. Each count carries up to three years of jail time and a $5,000 fine.
The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information pertaining to Alich to contact their office at 651-438-TIPS.
