Anoka man pleads guilty to sexual assault of girlfriend’s young daughter

An Anoka resident, who pleaded guilty in Anoka County District Court to one of three felony counts of criminal sexual conduct, has been sent to prison for 91 months.

In a plea agreement in September, Erick Antwan Casey, 28, entered a guilty plea to a third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge. Two first-degree counts dismissed at sentencing Nov. 5 when the court gave him credit for 278 days spent in jail, but ordered him to pay restitution totaling $291 from prison wages.

Casey was accused of sexual assaulting a daughter, now age 13, of his girlfriend, first in Wisconsin starting in September 2011 and since they moved to Anoka, most recently Jan. 29.

According to the complaint, siblings of the girl contacted Anoka Police Jan. 30 after reading a letter the girl had written the day before about inappropriate behavior by Casey.

In an interview with investigators, the girl stated that Casey had sexual intercourse with her almost every-other-day except when he was incarcerated while they were living in Wisconsin.

And when he got out of jail in Wisconsin and he was picked up by her mother and driven to Anoka where they were now living, the girl told investigators the sexual contact continued.

The girl’s siblings made statements that they had seen their sister and Casey in bed together and on one occasion when they heard moaning coming from a downstairs room, where they found Casey with their sister.
