Richard D. Wilson Jr. charged for criminal sexual conduct

Cass County Attorney Christopher J. Strandlie reports Richard Dean Wilson Jr., 42, was charged with five counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first and second degree relating to offenses that occurred in 2014-2016.

Cass County Attorney Christopher J. Strandlie reports Richard Dean Wilson Jr., 42, was charged with five counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first and second degree relating to offenses that occurred in 2014-2016.

The complaint alleges Wilson sexually penetrated or had sexual contact with three children younger than age of 13, and produced videos of the sexual assaults.

The allegations arose from an Internet Crime Against Children investigation in which Wilson purportedly shared downloaded child pornography with others. On March 9, 2017, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension discovered videos of the sexual assaults and confirmed the identity of the three victims.

Judge Earl Maas set unconditional bail at $250,000, and conditional bail at $100,000.

Additional conditions include that Wilson not have any contact with the three victims or their families, not have any unsupervised contact with minor children, not consume alcohol or controlled substances, be subject to random testing, not enter liquor establishments, not leave the state, not access the internet or any social media site, and remain law-abiding. Wilson is placed on pretrial supervision.
