A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Otto served in the Marine Corps and attended the University of Minnesota before transferring to St. Cloud State College, where he earned a B.S. in 1960, followed by four years of graduate study in educational administration. As a grad student, he worked as a deputy sheriff for Ramsey County, Minnesota and for the Arden Hills, Minnesota police department, while teaching at a junior high school in St. Paul.
In 1964, Otto joined the FBI, moving up through the ranks to inspector and supervisor positions. After serving as special agent in charge of the Minneapolis and then Chicago field offices, Otto was promoted into management positions, becoming executive assistant director of Law Enforcement Services in 1981.
