Report: Mark Mauer Must Take Classes, Pay Fine Following Prostitution Sting

Mauer, one of 19 men arrested in a February police operation in Fridley, accepted a continuance for dismissal, according to a FOX9 report.

Former Hill-Murray football coach Mark Mauer, who lived in Woodbury and resigned from his two posts at the school amid prostitution allegations, has agreed to a continuance for dismissal, according to a FOX9 report.

That means he will not be convicted as long as he pays $500 in court costs and takes a “Breaking Free” class within the next month and a half, the report says.

Mauer was arrested in Fridley in February as part of a two-day police operation at a motel. One of 19 men arrested, he was charged with a misdemeanor, booked at the Anoka County Jail and released.
