2 Men, Including Licensed Teacher, Charged with Child Prostitution in Stearns County

Two men, including a licensed teacher, were charged with child sex trafficking in Stearns County.

In two separate criminal complaints, 59-year-old Joseph Burton and 55-year-old, Kenneth Vilter, were charged with paying the same 15-year-old boy for sex on two different occasions.

Burton is accused of meeting the victim in late May and paying the boy $160 for sex. Vilter is also charged with paying the boy $300 for sex--also in late May.

Investigators say the only connection with these two cases is that they involve the same victim and the suspects used social media sites to make contact with the boy.
