Former Bagley School resource officer sentenced for sex crimes

A former Clearwater County Sheriff’s Deputy was sentenced Wednesday for additional sex crimes.

Thirty-three-year-old Neil Dolan, formerly of Shevlin, has been in prison since March for a separate sex crime in Becker County.

Dolan, also a former School Resource Officer, entered guilty pleas to first-degree criminal sexual conduct for sexually assaulting students at Bagley High School.

He was sentenced to another 14 years at the St. Cloud Correctional Facility on two separate Clearwater cases, with credit for 154 days served in local confinement.

Dolan’s Becker County charge ended in a two-year sentence.

With the new sentences, the earliest anticipated release date is 2030.

Dolan will spend the rest of his life under supervision.
