John Garza Canales was released Tuesday after serving about six years in prison on a vehicular homicide conviction. The 41-year-old was back in court Thursday on a charge of gross sexual imposition stemming from a November 2004 incident.

Charges weren't immediately filed. Four months later, he was arrested for causing a car wreck that killed 18-year-old Brady Blomseth of Mahnomen, Minn.
