The social worker charged with felony criminal sexual conduct with a victim to whom he’d been assigned no longer works for St. Louis County.

“Michael Bryant is no longer an employee of St. Louis County,” spokeswoman Dana Kazel said Tuesday. “We continue to work toward a timely resolution of the employment complaint.”

Michael Clarence Bryant, 46, of Wrenshall was alleged to have committed “ongoing sexual abuse of a vulnerable adult” in a criminal complaint filed last week in District Court in Duluth.

When first contacted last week, the county did not confirm separation efforts with Bryant, but said the matter was being taken “very seriously.”

Bryant is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 14. He is charged with two felony counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. The alleged offenses occurred both on and off the job.
