District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Donavan Douglas James Wold, 19, of Willmar, was sentenced Tuesday to 90 days in jail, 15 years of probation and 200 hours of community work service on a fourth-degree possession of drugs with intent to sell charge for selling drugs at Willmar Senior High School.

As part of a previously reached plea agreement, Wold pleaded guilty to the fourth-degree charge and two second-degree sale charges were dismissed.

Wold was ordered to serve 45 days in jail, and if he fails a drug test at that point, he will serve the full 90 days in custody. He was ordered to follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment, not use or possess alcohol or drugs, provide probation with information on his prescriptions and participate in victim-offender mediation.

The charges were filed after high school officials reported to the Willmar Police Department school resource officer on March 20 that there was reasonable suspicion that Wold was dealing drugs at the school.

Wold turned over a bag of Adderall pills when he was questioned by a school staff member. He also said he was planning to sell the pills.

When interviewed by the school resource officer, Wold admitted he was selling the pills for $3 per pill and that he was going to sell the six pills for $20. He also named the students he was going to sell the pills to and admitted to contacting other students about selling drugs. He had used emails, tweets and text messages to communicate regarding the drug sales.

A forensic examination of Wold’s electronic devices showed 40 text messages regarding drugs and 14 photos of drugs or drug paraphernalia.
