MANKATO, MN -

A plea deal is in the works for a former Winnebago man accused of criminal sexual conduct. 42-year old Larry Joe Decker's jury trial was slated to begin today in Blue Earth County court... but it was canceled. Decker faces five felony charges from a July incident, when investigators say he had sex with a teenager that he knew. Prosecutors tell News 12 that Decker will appear back in court for a combined plea hearing and sentencing once a formal deal is made. In the meantime, Decker remains in Blue Earth County jail.
