Local man charged with sexually assaulting child


Jamie Alan Fredrick

A Kerrick man has been arrested on two felony counts of criminal sexual conduct. According to the complaint, Jamie Alan Fredrick, 38, has been charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, which carries a maximum sentence of 12-30 years in prison and/or a $40,000 fine, and criminal sexual conduct in the second degree in which the victim is under 13 and the defendant is more than 36 months older the victim. That charge carries a penalty of 90 months to 25 years in prison and a fine up to $35,000.

The charges stem from an incident reported in June by the mother of the victim, a child who said the assault took place one or two years prior. The complaint states a forensic interview was conducted with the child at the Pine County Jail on June 16, and during the interview, the child stated the defendant forced his penis into the child's mouth.

On June 30, Fredrick was questioned about the incident while on work release from the Pine County Jail, according to the complaint, and denied any sexual abuse. Fredrick was serving time for a predatory offender registration violation that took place around October 2015, according to the complaint for the 2015 incident.

According to public court records, Fredrick has another predatory offender registration violation conviction from 2001. The county no longer has the complaint in that case, according to Pine County Attorney Reese Frederickson.

Frederickson said in an email Monday, he was unable to disclose the reason for the sex offender registration. He explained that, unlike adult complaints which are public data, if an individual had a juvenile offense that led to a predatory offender registration requirement, data privacy laws would prohibit disclosing that information.

On Monday, District Court Judge James T. Reuter set bail at $90,000 without conditions and $30,000 with conditions, including supervised release, remain law abiding, no drugs/alcohol, random testing, no firearms, no contact with the reported victim, and no contact with the residence.
