Cook County Attorney convicted of criminal sexual conduct

A St. Louis County jury deliberated for nine hours before finding Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell guilty of two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. Scannell will be sentenced Sept. 26.

Prosecutor Tom Heffelfinger argued during trial that Scannell abused a position of authority over a 17-year-old girl who was the child of Scannell’s family friends. The girl accused Scannell of kissing her and touching her sexually when they would take drives together. During his testimony, Scannell denied being in a position of authority over the girl and denied having a sexual intent in their meetings.

Scannell became known statewide in 2011, after a man he had successfully prosecuted for criminal sexual conduct shot him at the courthouse in Grand Marais.
