ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Supreme Court has indefinitely suspended the license of a former northern Minnesota prosecutor convicted of sexual misconduct involving a teenage girl.

The court took the action Wednesday against former Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell of Grand Marais.

Scannell was convicted of two counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct last year and sentenced to 30 days in jail. Jurors decided Scannell abused a position of authority when he kissed and touched the 17-year-old during drives they took in 2012.

The director of the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility filed the petition to discipline Scannell.

In its order, the Supreme Court said Scannell must wait three years before filing for reinstatement. He also has to pay $900 in costs.

A home telephone number for Scannell could not be found.
