Bemidji, Minn. (The Weekly Vice) - Janet Verjean Kern, a 73-year-old Minnesota woman has been charged with sexually molesting a 6-year-old autistic boy.
According to police, an investigation was launched last May when an unidentified witness found a 6-year-old autistic boy naked from the waist down, and Kern standing naked nearby, attempting to cover herself with a blanket.
Investigators say the boy stated that Kern touched him inappropriately after she assisted in removing his pants and underwear. The victim also stated that Kern wasn't wearing any clothing or underwear at the time.
Kern told detectives that the boy needed a change of pants and that she was merely helping him change. She also told detectives that she was naked because she was forced to removed her pants and underwear after experiencing urinary incontinence (wetting her pants).
Kern, who has no prior criminal history, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim who is mentally impaired or helpless.
