Molestation charges against NSP foster father dropped

In May, Ramsey County prosecutors dismissed two fourth-degree sexual conduct charges against Moua Soua Mouacheupao, 61, of North St. Paul. Mouacheupao was accused of molesting two female minors who were placed under foster care in his home with him and his wife, Sy Vang Mouacheupao.
A document submitted by the prosecution says “the State of Minnesota ... dismisses the (charges) on the grounds that the State is unable to maintain its burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt at a trial in this matter.”
Mouacheupao has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal. Over the years, his house on Buhl Avenue has been home to more than 25 foster children ages 2-21.

District 622 programs aim to keep students in school ... or get them back

The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District is launching new programs this fall so that students with young children and former students have a better chance to earn their high school diploma.
A daycare center for young children whose mothers are students will open in September at the District Education Center in North St. Paul. It is a partnership with the YMCA and designed to prevent young parents from dropping out. It will offer parenting classes as well, said community education director Chuck Erickson.
The district will also begin offering another new program at Harmony Learning Center this fall so adults between the ages of 18 to 21 who didn’t complete high school will have an added opportunity to earn their diploma.

Police file search warrant for phone records in Steger murder case

On July 26, police filed a search warrant affidavit for the cell phone records of a man who sold Kira Steger’s iPhone to a local electronics resale company following her disappearance last winter.
Investigators discovered through records obtained from Apple Inc. that Steger’s phone had been reactivated in Indonesia after having been sold to EZ Traderz in St. Paul.
The store owner gave police the name of the man who sold the iPhone, and law enforcement officials were able to contact and get statements from the individual. Now they hope to acquire the man’s phone records to verify that the statements he made are correct.
