The below is OCEAN Newsletter Volume 1, Issue 3, Article 1 (Sep. 12, 2019) published by Russell J. Hatton & Daniel A. Wilson from the gulag in Moose Lake Minnesota.
The Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) administration and the Minnesota Attorney General (AG) may be covering up for multiple MSOP staff members that should be charged with Criminal Sexual Conduct. OCEAN is currently awaiting a response from the AG to the following letter:
Dear Mr. Ellison,
According to MSOP clinician Paul Mayfield, there have been “hundreds” of inappropriate relations between clients and staff throughout the 19 years that he has worked at MSOP. How many of those “inappropriate relationships” are actually sexual is unknown. When this happens, the staff member is simply “walked out” of the facility with little consequences to the staff member, and no explanation for the clients. It is illegal, according to Minnesota statute, for MSOP staff to have sexual relations with MSOP clients. The statute explicitly states that MSOP staff who have sexual relations with clients are guilty of criminal sexual conduct because: ” … the actor knows or has reason to know that the complainant is mentally impaired, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless … the actor is an employee … or volunteer of a state … secure treatment facility, or treatment facility providing services to clients civilly committed as mentally ill and dangerous, sexually dangerous persons, or sexual psychopathic personalities … and the complainant is a resident of a facility or under supervision of the correctional system. Consent by the complainant is not a defense … ” ¹
WHERE IS THE AG IN THIS ISSUE? What is the Attorney General’s role in this issue. Is it the AG’s job to investigate and prosecute these sexual assaults at MSOP? I have only been here under 3 years and have known of at least 4 or 5 women being walked off of the property for messing around with clients. These men are locked up with an extremely small chance of getting released and if a woman staff says she can pull some strings for him, he will feel compelled to comply with her sexual advancements. Even worse, if he does not comply, she can make up anything she wants, put it on record, and who’s to say it never happened? The sex offender? How is it that MSOP staff has repeatedly been sexual with clients and we have rarely heard of prosecution? Is the AG covering up for MSOP because we are sex offenders? Please respond to this issue as soon as possible. We want you to know that this letter, along with your response (or lack thereof) will be placed into our OCEAN Newsletter, and distributed to the public. Thank you . . .
This letter was sent on August 8 , 2019 and we have still heard nothing.
