The Cass County Sheriff's Office reported Monday, Feb. 13, James Tacumseh Littlewolf, a Level 3 predatory offender, is planning on moving to the area Feb. 27.

Littlewolf engaged in sexual contact with a female teenager after entering her home without permission, according to information provided by the Cass County Sheriff's Office. A Level 3 predatory offender is the highest risk level and is considered most likely to reoffend.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office released the information pursuant to Minnesota Statutes 244.052 and 253D . The statutes authorize law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a public registrant's release from prison or a secure treatment facility when the Cass County Sheriff's Office believes the release of information will enhance public safety and protection.

Abuse of the information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered individual is unacceptable and could be charged as a crime, the sheriff’s office reported. Littlewolf served the sentence imposed on him by the court and is transitioning into the community.


“This notification is not intended to increase fear but rather raise awareness. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public,” the sheriff’s office stated.

The sheriff’s office may not direct where this individual does or does not reside, nor can this agency direct where he works or goes to school.

Questions can be directed to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office at 218-547-1424.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
