WARRANT OUT! Convicted Child Rapist in Oakdale, Wanted for Rape Again, This Time A Baby Sitter, Weak Charges

Warrant out for Arrest. Call the police immediately if seen. (booking photo is from a 2017 DUI arrest)

Gabriel Miguel Mitchell, DOB 11/24/1978, was convicted of
Gabriel Mitchell
violently raping a "13-15" year old child back in 2001
out of Ramsey County MN. He was charged with weak third degree child rape charges and convicted. Minnesota sentencing guidelines gave him a weak 18 months in jail. He only had 7 years of weak probation. (this is MN law, not the judge's fault)

To only the Surprise of do nothing law makers and weak prosecutors he's been accused of rape again. The elected Washington County attorney Pete Orput has charged Gabriel Mitchell with raping another person who just months prior was considered a child, but was an 18 year old baby sitter in his home (watching kids that were not directly related to him). Again he's been charged with weak 3rd degree rape charges despite apparently holding down the victim and raping her while she screamed. Hospital examination after the accused rape confirmed extensive injury to her private areas from the rape according to the criminal complaint. Why these rapists are almost never charged with first or second degree rape is not answered by the County Attorney's office. Not that it matters, 1st degree rape carries little extra punishment In Minnesota with the weak sentencing guidelines. Even still, when offenders are charged they often get shocking plea deals to lesser charges.    

It's no surprise that child predators who rape children will eventually rape another child. It's a fact the soul-less men who rape children are mentally disturbed and there's no cure (it seems). At best, there's management of these dangerous criminals through a max of only ten years of probation. In Minnesota, law makers believe child rapists can be "rehabilitated," do not need to be monitored, and can become good members of society. The evidence is the fact no bill has passed to make sex offender law more tough in the last two years. Also, Only several hundred of the over 20,000 convicted rapists in Minnesota are confined in prison. Most only do a couple years and then are released like this convicted child rapist.

Reoffending is so rampant it's fair to say it's bound to happen again. Whether they are caught is another. Here are just some stories from only Washington County in the last two years. Read them and then contact law makers to fix this problem please:
Man Who Repeatedly Raped a Child in Oakdale, Raped another Child While on Probation and Will be Out in 2 Years 

Fugitive Child Predator Who Police Report Says Was Caught With Pants Down and About to Rape Child, Found Living at Woodbury Hotel 




Last year and this year not one sex offender bill passed. Half the bills to make stronger sex offender laws were held back in the house. Senator Warren Limmer called them "non starters" and refused to discuss them in conference committee. The rest were killed in the Senate by the lead of Senator Limmer and Julie Rosen in conference committee. All of them refused to comment.

If you hope to see any law change continue to contact law makers, especially Warren Limmer. 

It's clear that just because a child rapist is convicted, doesn't mean justice has been served. Therefore, if the punishment for ALL criminal sexual conduct crimes is raised than weak charges and convictions will be stronger. 

Tell legislators to also make the sex offender list public like nearly every other State in the County does. All but MN, DC, and Maine have public lists. Maine only has 2,700 sex offenders in their state though. Compared to over 20,000 in MN. 

For the growing list of the last know location of convicted sex offenders in Washington County: 

DATE: 9/4/2018 
DEFENDANT: Gabriel Miguel Mitchell 
DOB: 11/24/1978 
CITY/RESIDENCE:
AGENCY: Oakdale Police Department 
CHARGE: I: Criminal Sex Conduct-3rd Degree-Force or Coercion
Criminal history:
2001 was convicted of raping a child (Criminal Sex Conduct-3rd Degree-Victim 13-15). He only did 18 months in Jail. After just 7 years after conviction he was discharged from having monitoring and probation and two days later the Court order for no contact was canceled.

Child Protection League and Readers Help WCW Release Public Data on Child Predators

For nearly four years the volunteers at Washington County Watchdog have been posting the public data on charged and convicted sex offenders in Washington County. All but a few (literally) are child predators. Most of whom do little to no prison time. Unfortunately the County charges $5 per booking photo. Thankfully, we have generous readers who have chipped in and contributed over the years. We just completed our third successful fund raising campaign and would like to share the news with you as well as thank the many donors. A large donation of $100 by the Mankato based Child Protection League (CPL) helped us quickly meet our goal. In appreciation, we have their website tagged on our side
bar.

100% of the money goes to to pay the Washington County fee for the $5 per booking photo. Donations are tracked on Gofundme.com so the public and donors know the sum of money being handled is the full sum being handed over. We subsequently release the proof of the 100% transfer of funds in articles like this as proof. We pride ourselves on being fiscally responsible by first trying to get photos of the child rapists faces from free sources, such as the 46 other states (not MN) that publicly list booking photos and crimes of their rapists. Out of state child predators flock to MN because they can live in the shadows here. 



In 2015 you gave $120 and it lasted an entire year. We made the 2016 total donation of $140 last two years. Again, thanks to the generous donations from readers and CPL we made our goal of $175. (see pictures below)  

Until Minnesota fixes it's horrifyingly weak sex offender laws, starting by publicly listing the 20,000+ released sex offenders in MN, we need to continue to raise awareness this way in hopes legislators will change our weak laws.
