Charges Dropped Against Former Daycare Employee

A former Grand Forks day care employee accused of sexually abusing four children has been cleared of all charges.

Psychologists determined that 32-year-old Timothy Tollefson, of Manvel, likely made a false confession.

Prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss the charges against Tollefson earlier this month and a judge has granted the request.

He was charged in December 2013 with four counts of gross sexual imposition for allegedly touching four girls during nap time at Immanuel Christian Children’s Center in Grand Forks.
