Iowan pleads guilty to using cattle prod on teen
An eastern Iowa man accused of using a cattle prod on a 16-year-old girl has pleaded guilty.
The Gazette reports that 50-year-old Eric Kolsrud, of Shellsburg, last week pleaded guilty to assault and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Authorities say Kolsrud used the shocking device on the girl following a dispute. Authorities say he also told a 15-year-old girl that she had to lie to officers if she were asked about the incident.
Sentencing for Kolsrud is scheduled for Nov. 15.
