Former La Crescent superintendent pleads guilty to disorderly conduct; domestic assault dismissed

CALEDONIA, Minn. (WKBT) — The former La Crescent-Hokah superintendent pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct on Tuesday in Houston County court.

A domestic assault charge against Eric Martinez, 51, was dismissed. He was sentenced to one year on probation and ordered to pay a $200 fine and $75 surcharge.

Martinez resigned from the La Crescent-Hokah district after his arrest in November. He argued with his girlfriend Nov. 4 loudly enough to wake up a neighbor, who called police, according to court records.
