An 18-year-old who pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct involving a 6-year-old in Brooklyn Park has been sentenced.

Tuesday, Jonah Paul Canny was sentenced to 145 days at the Hennepin County Workhouse — which he's already served — and five years of supervised probation.

According to a criminal complaint, on Wednesday, May 26 at about 11:05 p.m., Brooklyn Park police received a report that a 6-year-old was sexually assaulted. The victim's mother told officers that the child was with family members at Willowstone Park.
