ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man has pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct after having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

According to the criminal complaint, the girl's mother reported she had run away from their western Stearns County home on January 8th. The girl returned home before a sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene.

Records show the girl told the deputy that her boyfriend, 19-year-old Cayden Kohnen, had picked her up at 12:30 a.m. and brought her back home at 9:00 a.m. The girl denied having sexual relations with Kohnen at the time.

An investigator held a follow-up interview with the girl who then allegedly admitted she was in a sexual relationship with Kohnen and sent nude photos of herself to Kohnen over the social media app Snapchat.
