IGH Man Charged With Sex Crime Against 10-Year-Old Girl
Roger Pojar, 44, has been charged with a fourth-degree felony criminal sexual conduct after a 10-year-old girl accused him of touching and kissing her when she slept overnight at his home.
A 44-year-old Inver Grove Heights man has been charged with a felony after being accused of kissing and touching a 10-year-old girl.
Roger Alan Pojar is charged in Dakota County with felony fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. The maximum penalty for the charge, if he is convicted, would be five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
According to the court complaint, police got a complaint in October from a woman who said her 10-year-old daughter was “touched inappropriately by a neighbor over the past summer.”
Police were told by the mother that her daughter would sleep overnight at the friend’s home and then tell her Pojar “had approached her after the other girls were sleeping and had kissed her on the lips.”
Additionally, the complaint alleges the girl said that “during the night, she indicated that the defendant came to the bed and started rubbing her. The girl repeatedly asked the man to stop, at which point he'd leave, but later return and continue touching her, according to court records.
When officers spoke with Pojar, he said he remembered a night when the victim spent the night at his house with his daughter, and that they all slept on the pull-out, but that he didn’t remember details about the specific night. He speculated that he might have been drinking, the complaint alleges, “but he denied kissing, hugging, rubbing or touching the victim in any way.”
No court date as been assigned. A date will be set after Pojar has hired an attorney.
