High-risk sex offender moves to Grand Forks

Jeremy Spencer Woolsey

A high-risk sex offender is now living in Grand Forks, police said.

Jeremy Spencer Woolsey, 26, is residing at 1819 N. Fourth St. He has been convicted of two sex crimes and is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Woolsey was convicted of luring a minor by computer in 2014. He was 20 years old when he met a 14-year-old girl online and exchanged sexual messages over a three-month period, according to his sex offender registry. Woolsey spent two years behind bars and five years on probation.

He forced an 11-year-old boy to engage in sexual acts in 2008 and made the child and another 12-year-old boy watch porn, the registry said.

There are 113 registered sex offenders that live, work or attend school in Grand Forks. Eleven of those offenders are considered high risk, meaning they are the most dangerous or likely to offend again.
