Oakdale Man Charged With Rape of Six Year Old Child and Released, Less Than 3 Year Sentence Likely

Darius Antonnee Smith of Oakdale has been charged with 1st degree child rape. According to the criminal complaint the victim was 6 years old at the time of the first of many apparent rapes between March and June 2017. The mother became aware of the signs of the abuse when she witnessed the child victim attempting a sexual act on another child. When the mother asked the child where they learned this the child explained she learned it from the accused Darius Smith.

Investigators brought the child in for questioning and to horrifying detail described many different sexual acts that she was apparently made to do with Darius Smith at his home.

Police had the young child tested for sexually transmitted diseases and several private areas tested positive, perhaps indicating the child was raped and contracted the disease.

One may think because Smith has been charged with this serious crime at a first degree level that he'd be held in Jail until trial and if convicted spend many years in prison. The fact is he was only held on a 36 hour hold and appeared to be released from the Washington County Jail on October 26th. 

Based on examples below of those charged with 1st degree child rape they serve the same weak sentence of about three years in Jail. That's only if the County Prosecutors don't give the defendant a plea deal to lesser charges which is often the case to prevent the victim from having to take the stand. In the end, it's not the judges fault for the weak sentences. It's all on the ridiculously weak MN law and the weak sentencing guidelines.

See some of the many cases in the last couple years of those convicted of supposedly harsh 1st or 2nd degree rape from Washington County:

To see dozens of examples in the last two years of insane plea deals from Washington County prosecutors and the weak MN sex offender law letting the public down see:

In Minnesota, law makers and prosecutors 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. More information here:

If you hope to see any law change, continue to contact law makers, especially Senator Warren Limmer who has refused to pass the sex offender bills in his key special committee in the Senate. 

It's clear that just because a child rapist is charged or convicted, doesn't mean justice will be served after sentencing if convicted. Therefore, if the punishment for ALL criminal sexual conduct crimes is raised than weak charges and convictions will be stronger. With the raised bar there won't be a thing as an outrageous plea deal to lesser rape charges or a weak sentence.

Tell legislators to also make the sex offender list public like nearly every other State in the Country 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.
