Wild said that Olson had partic- ipated in some sex offender treat- ment twice while in Minnesota prison however he did not com- plete the program. He was released from Min- nesota Correctional Facility-Lino Lakes in September of 2010 and was released from parole and pro- bation in July of 2012, Wild said that Olson does not have avehicle and is not currently employed. Olson is 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs 148 pounds. Wild stressed Olson has served his time and that this meeting was for educational purposes only .to make those within the community aware of who their neighbor is. Wild said that he got the level 3 status from Olson's paperwork from Washington, but Wild said that the system from state-to-state is very similar. Washington defines level 3 as "Level 3 Offenders are considered to have a high risk to re- offend. They usually have one or more victims and may have com- mitted prior crimes of violence. They may not know their victim(s). The crime may show a manifest cruelty to the victim(s) and these offenders usually deny or minimize tile crime. These offenders com- monly have clear indications of a personality disorder." There are no laws prohibiting Olson from living near the school or daycare, however he is prohib- ited from being on or in school property except as prmitted by school board policy and for certain reasons such as voting or to attend a public meeting. According to the North Dakota Sex Offender website, "prohibition applies to all public and non-public elementary, middle and high schools. School property may in- clude playing fields, playgrounds, fnd ottief ficilities. In accordance with school policy or with written permission from the school, a reg- istered offender may attend parent- teacher conferences and school functions." Wild said that any'changes that the community would need to be - aware of regarding Olson would be posted on the state sex offender website: Wild stressed Olson has served his time and that thts meeting was for educational purposes only to make those within the community aware Notice Of Filing Deadline Fordville-Lankin School District #005 of who their neighbor is.
