Offender re-enters system after 22 years
A man incarcerated for criminal sexual conduct with two minor-aged males as his victims, in 2001, was back in county jail this week, booked on a probation violation. Rodney Owen Scofield will serve out a stayed sentence of 54 months, as decided in a hearing April 24, before Judge Trevino. He was held locally pending transfer to St. Cloud Correctional Facility.
Chisago County Attorney Janet Reiter said Scofield’s supervised probation was to expire in March 2033. She stated, this court response is an example of how the monitoring and agent oversight provides a level of supervision and accountability of serious offenders in our community.
Scofield was charged with first and second degree criminal sexual conduct for incidents that took place while he worked as a local youth church choir director. Charges stemmed from 1995 to 2000. He entered a guilty plea to Judge Clifford in 2001 on the second degree counts and first degree charges were dismissed. He was apprehended on a probation violation in October 2022 and was in Center City for the hearing last month. County Attorney Reiter said she was unable to share the actual probation stipulation that was violated.
