Former HLWW band instructor charged with criminal sexual conduct

HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – Former Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Middle School band instructor has been charged with four counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to a formal complaint.

Andrew Scott Rosevold, 30,  resigned in September.

HLWW High School Principal Jason Mix contacted police after a 15-year-old student told him she and Rosevold had kissed and had conversations on social media, according to the complaint.

Sept. 18, police executed a search warrant at Rosevold’s residence.

During the search, they found four videos that showed Rosevold and the student kissing, hugging, and “touching in a romantic and sexual manner while clothed,” according to the complaint.

As of Monday, Rosevold was in custody in the Wright County Jail, according to the Oct. 8 jail census.

If convicted, Rosevold could face up to 40 years in jail.

HLWW Superintendent Brad Sellner issued a statement to parents Monday noting that the district is aware that criminal charges have been filed against Rosevold, and is cooperating with law enforcement.

He advised parents to direct any questions or concerns to the Howard Lake Police Department.

The charges follow earlier speculation about Rosevold’s departure from his position.

In a Sept. 25 letter to parents,  Sellner noted many parents had raised questions about Rosevold being “unexpectedly absent for the past several days.”

Rosevold submitted his resignation, which was accepted by the school board Sept. 24.
