(Learfield News Service/St. Cloud, MN) A semi driver from Michigan who was pulled over Monday morning on I-94 east of Moorhead is now charged with raping a 15-year-old girl.
Thirty-four-year-old Kenneth George Zehnder was charged Wednesday with one felony count of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, according to a criminal complaint filed in Stearns County District Court.
