Maple Grove McDonald's manager accused of raping 14-year-old employee sentenced to 10 years

The former Maple Grove McDonald's manager pleaded guilty in November.

Nearly a year after five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges were filed against him, a former McDonald's manager in Maple Grove has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. 

Andrew O. Albertorio, 25, of Maple Grove, pleaded guilty Nov. 25 to raping a 14-year-old girl who worked at the McDonald's, with a criminal complaint noting that numerous sexual assaults happened between December 2018 and January 2019. 

In November 2018, the pair began talking via SnapChat and Albertorio would flirt with her at work, including "attempting to kiss her," the charging document says.

The victim told police she would push him away, saying she believed it was wrong because he was her manager and much older than her. The girl told Albertorio she didn't want to have sex with him. 

While he was initially "respectful" of this, according to the complaint, Albertorio allegedly cornered her in the cooler of the restaurant and, despite her telling him no, proceeded to rape her. The victim told police she felt "pressured" into the act.

Over the next month, he assaulted her again in the cooler and in the back room of the restaurant, as well as in his vehicle parked on Bass Lake Road, and his home in Maple Grove.

Often, Albertorio would pay the victim "out of pocket" so she could work late despite her telling him she wasn't supposed to work extra hours because of her age, the complaint said. 

Albertorio received a lesser sentence than the minimum 144 months under the Minnesota State Sentencing Guidelines. Hennepin County District Court Judge Jeannice Reding gave the 120-month sentence for a number of reasons, some of which are described in the release from Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman. 

"Judge Reding gave several reasons for departing below the minimum, stating 'the crime is less onerous than usual,' and that 'there was a limited supervisory role, no predatory action.' Judge Reding also said, 'there was some sense of a relationship on behalf of the suspect and victim.' 

Assistant Hennepin County Attorney Rachel Kraker argued that Albertorio get the minimum 144 months because he acted in a position of authority. 

“We see not only that he was in that position, but he used that authority for his own sexual purposes," Kraker said.
