Robert Bruce Zemlin, 48, was scheduled to be sentenced Monday this week but sentencing has been delayed.
A psychosexual assessment ordered by the court after Zemlin entered his guilty plea in June, has arrived late. Zemlin’s attorney Steve Wolter on Monday requested sentencing be continued. The pre-sentence investigative report that the judge relies on for imposing sentence, would have been rushed or incomplete with very little time to review, the attorney argued.
Zemlin entered a guilty plea June 24 to felony possession of Internet child pornography.
His residence in Lindstrom was searched after state child porn investigators linked his computer address to an Internet investigation based in Minneapolis.
The defendant is a former Taylors Falls Elementary teacher and had been employed at Forest Lake Schools prior to that. Chisago Lakes Superintendent Dean Jennissen was not able to comment on Zemlin’s departure from the district in 2018.
