Wolford man facing felony charges

March 23, 2018
Pierce County Tribune

A 40-year-old Wolford man has confessed to sexually abusing a teenage girl he was previously arrested for molesting last summer according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office.

Kim Eugene Yoder was charged in Pierce County with four counts of Class C felony sexual assault. The victim was between the ages of 15 and 17 at the time of the assault.

Yoder and his wife Laura, have had the girl living with them in a foster type situation in their home in Wolford for over a year. The victim is no longer in the home.

Yoder retained Grand Forks Attorney Tyler J Morrow after he made an initial appearance in district court in Rugby. Yoder is currently released on a $10,000 cash bond. A hearing was scheduled for Feb. 26 before Judge Michael Hurley but was canceled. No future date has been set as of press time.

Each Class C felony carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The indication after confession would be that the defendant will try to negotiate a lesser sentence, the Sheriff's Office commented.
