FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota sheriff's deputy is jailed on charges he had sexual contact with boys while volunteering as a fishing guide at a church camp.

Mille Lacs County Deputy Aaron Heuer (hire) is charged in Otter Tail County with four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and four counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

KFGO-AM reports Heuer is accused of having sexual contact with four boys while volunteering at a camp near Henning last month.

Investigators say the boys were between 8 and 10 years old. KBRF-AM reports several additional incidents are alleged to have happened on a separate fishing trip in Aitkin County.

Heuer is on administrative leave. He has been with the Mille Lacs County sheriff's office for six years. His next court appearance is set for Aug. 5.
