DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - A 48-year-old Waubun man has pleaded not guilty in Becker County District Court here to felony fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and gross misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Daniel Kevin Finn entered the not guilty plea during a Monday hearing. Prior to the hearing, Finn's attorney, Roger Nierengarten of St. Cloud, withdrew a request to contest some of the evidence in the case.

According to court records:

On March 29, Finn went to Oxbow Resort on Elbow Lake in Becker County with two young men, ages 18 and 19, after enlisting their help in unloading furniture.

They first went to Brainerd to pick up the furniture. Finn allegedly purchased beer and hard liquor there as well.

Upon arriving at Oxbow, it was too late to unload, so they stayed overnight.

The three played drinking games and the two younger men became extremely intoxicated, according to court records.

Court records state that after the men went to bed, Finn touched them inappropriately.

The 18-year-old was allegedly frightened and didn't know what to do, so he feigned sleep, and when Finn left the room he woke up the 19-year-old, told him what happened and they left the resort unobserved.

A pretrial hearing is set for Oct. 9 and the trial is set for Oct. 21.
