A former manager of a McDonald’s in Maple Grove, MN was sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a 14-year-old employee. Andrew Otero Albertorio (25) pleaded guilty in November to one of five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges. According to the criminal complaint, numerous sexual assaults happened between December of 2018 and January of 2019. The victim told investigators that Albertorio paid her “out of pocket” to work additional hours in an attempt to avoid violating state child labor laws.
On Monday, Albertorio was sentenced in Hennepin County District Court to 10 years in prison and must register with the state as a predatory offender. The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office argued that Albertorio “used his authority for his own sexual purposes.”
“Sexual predation is not new. We know as a society that we need to protect our children from sexual predators. In particular, employers have an obligation to provide safe working environments for all of their employees, including minors. They need to carefully scrutinize who they put in positions of power, monitor them, and simultaneously give employees a safe and confidential way to report inappropriate conduct by a supervisor, without fear of retaliation. Had the employer done that here – and if upper management hadn’t delegated their responsibilities to a sexual predator – there would have been no opportunity for Mr. Albertorio to sexually assault his underage subordinate.”Attorney Raymond Konz
