    Hibbing Daily Tribune: Former teacher to face prostitution, porn charges (Mar 19 2013)

    March 2010, the Hibbing Police Department received a report from a 17-year-old male that he had been sexually assaulted by an elderly male while under the influence of alcohol. The juvenile told investigators that he and a friend had been knocking on doors a few days prior, offering to do odd jobs to earn some money. They then stopped at the home of Gangl, who said he’d allow them to walk his dog for $10 an hour. The juveniles were told they’d have to come another day as Gangl already had someone else lined up to walk his dogs that day. The juvenile and his friend returned to Gangl’s the next day. While there, the juvenile said that Gangl gave them each a shot of cognac. They then walked the dog for 10 to 20 minutes and returned to his residence. Gangl offered to pay them $10, but gave them a liter of whiskey instead, according to court records.

    Two days later, the juvenile returned to Gangl’s residence alone. While there, the two had mixed drinks while visiting. The juvenile described the drinks as “mixed strong” and told investigators he had become intoxicated. The juvenile said the two somehow engaged in oral sex, adding he felt that “Gangl had somehow tricked him” and that it would have never happened if he was sober, according to court records. Gangl also took photos of the boy’s unclothed body, minus his face, the juvenile claimed. Before leaving the residence, the juvenile said Gangl gave him $100 cash as “a gift” despite not having “worked” or walked his dogs that day. The juvenile told investigators that he asked Gangl what the cash was for, and he replied that it was in exchange for the sexual act. The juvenile took the money, spent a few dollars and later turned over the remaining cash to law enforcement.
