More Than 15 Years in Prison For Rochester Child Sexual Abuser
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man was handed a more than 15-year prison sentence today in a child sexual abuse case.
60-year-old Thomas Allen Moe was also ordered to remain on conditional release for the remainder of his life for his conviction on first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct involving two young girls. An Olmsted County jury returned the guilty verdict against Moe last November.
Court records show he was charged in July 2018 with one count each of first and second-degree criminal sexual conduct. Another criminal complaint was filed against him in September 2024 a single count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct involving another victim.
In the first case, Moe was accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl beginning in December 2017. She told investigators the abuse continued through July 2018 and that her younger sister had also been sexually assaulted by him. According to court documents, the younger sister initially did not disclose any sexual abuse, but later spoke to a mandatory reporter in Winona County and shared that she had been assaulted by Moe beginning when she was seven years old.
The criminal complaint indicates the sexual abuse occurred while the mother of the young girls was at work and Moe would come to their home in Southeast Rochester to assist with childcare.
