A felony charge has been filed against a 29-year-old Mankato man who is accused of sexually assaulting a vulnerable adult Friday.
Matthew Michael Gould allegedly had sex with the woman in a wooded area in South Bend Township, the criminal complaint said. The woman’s family told investigators she has the mental capacity of a 10-year-old child.
Gould told investigators he knew the victim worked at MRCI, but didn’t realize she was a client. He told a deputy he thought the woman worked with people with disabilities, but wasn’t disabled herself.
Gould made his initial court appearance for the third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge Tuesday.
