A Kenyon man awaiting sentencing for sexual assault has made a deal with prosecutors on two separate sets of sexually related charges he still faces.
Patrick Luna, 40, pleaded guilty Monday to fourth-degree and second-degree criminal sexual conduct. All remaining charges in those pending cases will be dismissed as part of the plea bargain.
Luna — a former business owner, Kenyon city employee and volunteer firefighter — is facing three sets of criminal sexual conduct charges.
A jury already convicted Luna in January on the first group of charges, including counts of first-, second- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Luna will be sentenced in all three cases at 9 a.m. Monday in Goodhue County District Court. He faces a maximum sentence of 105 years in prison and a $160,000 fine.
All the alleged victims worked at Luna’s pizza and video rental shop, Pat’s Pit Stop.
Allegations of sexual abuse — including touching, inappropriate language and intercourse — took place after the male and female teenagers began working there.
