District Court

Kandiyohi County

n Mark James Wilson, 32, of Hawick, pleaded guilty Thursday to a gross misdemeanor charge of stalking - repeated telephone calls.

As part of a plea agreement, the original charge of felony stalking against Wilson will be dismissed. He will be sentenced Oct. 8.

The charge was filed after January 2011, when a Kandiyohi County Corrections agent began reporting to the Sheriff 's Office that Wilson was calling her and speaking of random topics and leaving messages and rants with similar content on her voicemail. Wilson had been on probation and the agent had been assigned to monitor him, but he had been finished with his probationary period for some time.

After a series of calls in January, Wilson was advised by a deputy to stop the calls unless he had a specific reason to contact the probation agent. However, he sent emails in April and in September, repeatedly called the agent and the corrections reception desk asking for the agent's home address and talking about visiting her at home. After the receptionist hung up on him, he called back three times, leaving messages on voicemail about visiting the agent.

Wilson had a prior conviction for violating an order for protection in November 2005 in Hennepin County.

n Juanel Anthony Mikulak, 24, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Thursday to a fourth-degree drug sale charge for his role in selling 0.9 grams of methamphetamine to a CEE-VI Drug Task Force informant.

As part of a plea agreement, the charge was reduced from third-degree level. He will be sentenced Sept. 11.

Mikulak and Bobby Joel Taylor, 27, of Belgrade, are both charged in the case. Taylor's case was taken under advisement by Judge Kathryn N. Smith on Aug. 7.

According to the complaints against the men, the informant met Mikulak at a Willmar motel and they drove to meet Taylor at another Willmar location and exchanged a packet of crystal substance for $100. The informant handed over two packages after the sale was complete, with one package containing 0.9 grams testing positive for meth and another package, weighing 0.8 grams that did not conclusively test as meth. The second package was sent on to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for further testing.

n Michael John Bontjes, 22, of Spicer, made his first appearance Wednesday on a third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge for having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

Unconditional bail was set at $30,000. His next appearance is Sept. 4.

According to the complaint, the now 16-year-old girl told a Kandiyohi County Sheriff's detective in March that she had multiple sexual encounters with Bontjes from June 2010 to June 2011 at a home in Willmar. She said that he knew she was 14 years old when they began their relationship.

Bontjes was interviewed and confirmed the sexual relationship with the girl. He is 5 years, 10 months and 14 days older than the girl.

n Jesse Allen Maag, 17, of Willmar, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a felony charge of terroristic threats and a misdemeanor charge of fifth-degree assault.

Maag was ordered held in the Prairie Lakes Youth Program secure facility. His next appearance is Aug. 29.

According to the juvenile petition, Willmar Police were called around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to a home in the northwest quadrant of the city regarding a man threatening himself and others with a knife. Others at the home reported that Maag had been confronted about smoking and other misconduct and that he'd gotten upset, broken items and then threatened himself and another person with a knife.

Several witnesses at the scene gave similar reports. Maag was interviewed and allegedly admitted to threatening the woman because she'd called 911 to alert law enforcement about the situation.
