A 27-year-old man — a Level 3 predatory offender — will be released from prison Wednesday and will move to a home on the 10000 block of Wise Road in rural Brainerd, Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl reports.
Joshua Chad Tromblay has a history of sexual contact with male and female victims ages 3 to adult. His contact included penetration and he was known to his victims.
Tromblay will be released from the Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC) on Wednesday and will live at the rural Brainerd address.
The sheriff’s office will host a community notification meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Brainerd Police Department. A Level 3 predatory offender is the highest risk level who is most likely to re-offend. The state requires a community notification meeting when Level 3s get out of prison.
The DOC will present the public with information on Tromblay. He is not wanted by the police at this time and he has served the sentence imposed on him by the court. This notification is not intended to increase fear in the community. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public.
The sheriff’s office, the supervising release agent and the DOC may not direct where the offender can or cannot reside, nor can the agencies direct him where to work or which school to attend. The risk level of Tromblay was determined largely on his potential to re-offend based on his previous criminal behavior.
Tromblay was convicted in Benton County on fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim who was mentally impaired/helpless in 2011. He was sentenced to 36 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud and 10 years on probation. Conditions of his probation was that he could not use or possess mood-altering substances, had to complete psychological assessment, no contact with victim, register as a sex offender, sex offender treatment and no firearms.
There will be six Level 3 predatory offenders living in Crow Wing County: Tromblay, Brandon Keith Churchill, Dennis Anthony Lee, Joshua Paul Rinde, Christopher Robert Roehl and Christopher Eugene Wheeler.
