Cop Admits to Sex with a Child, Escapes Jail AND Gets $15K in Severance Pay

Ely, MN — On October 14, 2015, Sgt. Jason Allen Carlson, with the Ely police department, was indicted on charges of third-degree criminal sexual conduct for admitting to having sexual relations with an underage girl. It took over two years, but in January, the officer pleaded guilty. However, because of his blue privilege, Carlson will not see a single day in jail — and, as we’ve just learned, he’ll receive severance pay from the department.

Carlson, who was described in court as an acquaintance to the girl’s parents, admitted to breaking the law. He admitted to taking the girl, against all department policy, on ride alongs with him. She wasn’t even old enough to drive yet.

During the indictment, Carlson also admitted to having sex with the child.

“I engaged in sexual contact with an individual who was at least 16 but had not reached the age of 18,” Carlson stated in a plea petition. “I knew I could not do so.”

Because Carlson was in a position of authority, his acts with this child were that much worse, as she could’ve been intimidated into the relationship. According to the Duluth News Tribune, a St. Louis County grand jury in October 2015 indicted Carlson on a felony third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge, alleging that he was in a “position of authority” over the victim.

Carlson’s case was set for trial in January. However, due to the fact that cops across the country, who admit to vile acts, even with children, are given special privileges by the court system, Carlson entered into a plea deal. St. Louis County prosecutor Gary Bjorklund then reduced the charge to misconduct of a public officer.

Instead of spending time in jail, now Carlson will most likely even escape probation. But it gets worse.

Carlson, who’s been on paid vacation for over two years since admitting to having sex with a minor — was not even fired.

Earlier this month, the Ely police department, with the blessing of the city council, allowed Carlson to quietly resign — and agreed to pay him $15,000 as part of the resignation deal. 

Imagine for a moment that a person works in the civilian sector and is arrested and charged for having sex with a minor. Of course, everyone is innocent until proven guilty — so, they may not be fired right away. However, once they were indicted after admitting to the charge, what are the odds that a private company would allow an admitted child sex offender to collect a paycheck — for two more years — and then receive severance pay?

Not only would that person have been immediately fired, but they would have been convicted much faster, and they would be in jail right now.

However, because Carlson wears a badge, this 11-year veteran of the Ely police department will likely use his newfound windfall of cash to relocate to another department — and do the same thing all over again. After all, he gets to act out his sexual desires with high school freshmen and then gets insanely long paid vacations.

      Things got the way they are with the enlightened ones in charge and the Clintoons had a well-documented history of sexual assault as well as multiple rides to Epstein’s Fantasy Island..And by the way one must wonder why there was no investigation of Pizzagate.I do agree that there will be little change with Trump but that’s been true every 4 years.

    It would seem that the less of a moral compass a cop possesses get’s him the biggest rewards.
    What a crazy mixed up world and these are supposedly people you put your trust in.
    Not saying much for the victims either.

      A PA State Trooper in Clarion, PA back in the 90s actually was caught with a 14 year old girl he regularly assaulted, he got really punished, he got promoted to detective and transferred to another barracks, and the PA State Police Headquarters settled out of court for an undisclosed settlement, which means in a poor area like that they got paid a huge payout and probably also transferred him to another barracks which never happens from that barracks since it is a dump barracks/punishment barracks for the troopers that the Headquarters know will be problems or is a problem.
      We have sexual predators with full protections of the courts and will never see one day of punishment, but innocent citizens have to serve years in prison due to false accusations.

    In the long run it would have cost the city more to fire him. His union would have stepped in to protect him, the city would have to pay it’s lawyer to defend their actions…..this was the cheaper alternative, thanks to unions.
