Trott has lived in the community off and on since 2011 after being released from prison for a criminal sexual conduct conviction in Carver County.

The community notification sheet provided by the Police Department stated Trott engaged in sexual contact with a known female teen. Contact included sexual touching and penetration. Trott took advantage of the victim’s cognitive abilities and used force to gain compliance.

He is classified as a Level 3 predatory offender, an offender who is most likely to reoffend.

He has also had convictions for fourth-degree damage to property and second-degree burglary in Carver County; and escaping from custody, trespassing and domestic abuse no contact order violations in Freeborn County. 

Albert Lea Police Department Detective Julie Lynne Kohl said Trott will be on GPS monitoring and intensive supervised release.
