Sex offender fugitive arrested in Clearwater, Minnesota

Author:

State authorities say they have arrested the sex offender fugitive they were searching for this week.

Dagan Michael Lasart, 32, failed to register where he was living with St. Cloud Police, who earlier this week said they did not know where he was, noting he had last been seen in Bloomington, where he was registered as homeless.

Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension officers said they found him Thursday night in the town of Clearwater, Minnesota, about 10 miles southeast of St. Cloud, and he was taken into custody without incident.

Lasart, a level III predatory offender, had been convicted for breaking into a woman’s home and sexually assaulting her.

Police told the St. Cloud Times that Lasart was convicted of a sex crime against a woman after he used a weapon to enter her home without permission.

A level III classification means state officials have determined an offender has the highest risk of reoffending, the Monticello Times reports.

Testing Minnesota's controversial sex-offender program

Clarence Opheim is about to be the first patient released from the Minnesota sex-offender facility in St. Peter. He could move to a halfway-house as soon as Saturday. The convicted pedophile has spent the past 19 years in the sex-offender program. Republican leaders are concerned and don't want the 64-year-old released, even though a three-judge panel says he has completed treatment.
