Joseph Leroy Driscoll – Child Molester whines he was only urinating off the porch

A 16-year-old Willmar boy was sentenced Monday to sex offender treatment, community service and probation until his 21st birthday on three felony counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct for molesting three young girls.

Joseph Leroy Driscoll was also ordered to register as a predatory offender, comply with his placement at Village Ranch in Cokato and to have no contact with the victims, their family or unsupervised contact with minor females.

The boy received extended juvenile jurisdiction in Kandiyohi County District Court, under which he received both a juvenile sentence and an adult sentence. The adult sentence is enacted if he fails to comply with the juvenile sentence. The adult sentence included 39 months in prison, plus a 10-year conditional release period.

As part of a plea agreement, three additional felony charges of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, a gross misdemeanor charge for indecent exposure and three misdemeanor charges for disorderly conduct, domestic assault and fifth-degree assault were dismissed.

Felony matters against 16- and 17-year-olds are public.

According to the petition, the Willmar Police Department received a report May 2 that three young girls had been sexually abused by Driscoll. The girls were 6, 7 and 8 years old.

The parent reported seeing Driscoll having sexual contact with the girls and exposed different parts of his body to the girls. The parent also said the girls told him the day before that Driscoll has touched them and himself inappropriately.

A Kandiyohi County Family Services social worker interviewed the girls the same day. The older girls said Driscoll had sexually touched them, spanked them, exposed himself to them and that he choked one of the girls.

In an interview with police, Driscoll admitted to being “kind of mean” to the girls because they were loud and obnoxious and would fight. He said he urinated off the porch because someone was in the bathroom.

James E. Green – Noncompliant Sex Offender


A judge rejected a plea deal Monday that would have released a sex offender on surety bail.

James E. Green, 43, with a last known address of 13 Wedgewood Road, was brought from the Rockingham County House of Corrections to Portsmouth District Court Monday, when he waived his right to a probable cause hearing. That waiver moved his felony case — alleging he failed to notify police that he moved to Portsmouth — to the Superior Court.

During the same hearing, prosecutor Corey MacDonald told the court an agreement was reached which would change Green’s bail from $5,000 cash to $5,000 cash or surety, meaning he would be able to post $5,000 worth of collateral in lieu of cash. MacDonald also told the court the agreement would include Green being barred from the Gosling Meadows public housing neighborhood if he posts the bail.

Noting “the nature of the offense,” Judge Gardner said she would not accept the surety portion of the agreement.

Green is charged with a felony count of “sex offender registration/ duty to report,” alleging he was living in Gosling Meadows with a woman and her 6-year-old child, without informing local police he was residing in the city. Police say Green was convicted in Massachusetts in 1984 for raping a child under the age of 16.
