Airbnb guest pleads guilty to attempted sexual assault of 7-year-old girl

- An Airbnb guest who rented a room at a Minnetonka home pleaded guilty to attempting to sexually assault the host's seven-year-old daughter.

Monday, Derrick Kinchen, 28, of Michigan pleaded guilty to attempted second degree criminal sexual conduct of a victim under 13.

According to the criminal complaint, in September the girl's father heard Kinchen, who had been in town for a wedding, come home around midnight. About fifteen minutes later, the father noticed the bedroom door was open with the lights on. On the bed, he found Kinchen lying naked next to his daughter.

In court Monday, Kinchen said he did not remember what happened that night and made a Norgaard plea. He told the court he remembered he drank a lot that night. He said he went to the bathroom and thought he went back to his room, but then people started yelling at him, so he ran away.

Police later found Kinchen in a neighbor's boat, wearing nothing but a suitcoat.

Kinchen is expected to receive a sentence of five years on probation with 18 months in prison if he violates the terms of his probation. He will be sentenced on May 18.
