Blue Earth Man Sentenced For Two Sexual Assaults

Last Tuesday, June 14th, Aron Goshorn, of Blue Earth, was sentenced for sexually assaulting 2 girls under the age of 14.

Goshorn was originally charged on July 7th, 2021 with 1st and 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct. As a result of a plea negotiation, he pleaded guilty on April 4th to one count of 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct, with the 1st degree charge being dismissed.

On September 5th, 2019, the mother of one of the victims reported her daughter had disclosed a sexual assault by Goshorn at a residence near Delavan during a Christmas gathering when the victim was 13 years old.  Then a second victim came forward and disclosed she was also assaulted by Goshhorn when she was just 12.  Goshorn was 35 and 36 years old at the time of the assaults.

Goshorn’s sentencing order includes local confinement for 180 days and also includes mandatory sex offender programming, 10 years of probation, which includes no contact with the victims, no use or access to the internet, no access to or use of sexual materials, no contact with children under 18 years old and predatory offender registration, in addition to typical probationary terms.

Goshorn is currently in custody at the Faribault County Law Enforcement Center.
