DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota newspaper executive has pleaded guilty after being caught in a prostitution sting in a Duluth motel room last November.
49-year-old Todd Keute pleaded guilty to prostitution in a public place, a gross misdemeanor.
Keute was sentenced last week to one year of probation. He also was fined $1,500 and $85 in surcharges and has to complete the "Breaking Free" educational program.
Keute told the Duluth News Tribune on Monday that he deeply regrets his "lapse of judgment" and is sorry for his actions.
