ST. CLOUD -- A Sartell man who admitted to sexually abusing an altar boy has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Fifty-six-year-old Douglas Kleinsmith pleaded guilty in April to two counts of 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct involving a teenager younger than 18-years-old.
Court records show Kleinsmith volunteered to train altar boys at a St. Cloud church when the boy was 15. The boy also began working for Kleinsmith outside of the church at that time.
According to the criminal complaint, Kleinsmith sexually abused the boy on at least four occasions when he was between the ages of 16-and-18-years-old.
