BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) – A French national has been convicted in France of sexually assaulting boys during a field trip to a language camp in northern Minnesota.

Thirty-two-year-old Adrien Massy was sentenced in Angers, France, to 12 years in prison. Massy allegedly assaulted six boys and girls in Minnesota, then fled to France to avoid trial.

French consul Alain Frecon says four of Massy’s victims were French citizens, and two were Americans.

Frecon says Massy was tried in France because Massy acknowledged he had committed similar crimes in his homeland.

Beltrami County Sheriff Phil Hodapp says two of Massy’s victims in Minnesota were boys and were with Massy in May 2010 on a field trip from the French Academy of Minnesota in St. Louis Park to the Concordia language camp.
