State commits accused rapist

December 01, 2010  12:00 am By Nolan Rosenkrans.

A Winona man charged with raping young girls was committed Tuesday to a treatment facility for at least the next six months.

Mark Francis Raveill, 18, was charged with first-, second- and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct in the rapes of 7- and 13-year-old girls, but last month he was found to be not competent to stand trial because of mental deficiency.

Doctors say his IQ is approximately 55, putting him in the moderate mental retardation range, Assistant County Attorney Susan Cooper said in court Tuesday.

Raveill and his attorney, Bruce Nelson, chose not to contest the commitment.

Police received two reports in April accusing Raveill of sex crimes, and arrested him April 20 after he admitted he raped the girls, police said.

Officers were first contacted by Department of Human Services employees who reported that a 7-year-old girl said Raveill raped her in the summer or early fall of 2009. Police were investigating that report when they were contacted about a separate sex assault.

A woman told police her 13-year-old daughter was assaulted by Raveill in February. The girl said that while in a residence in the 500 block of East Third Street, Raveill pulled her into a room, locked the door and raped her.

Raveill will likely stay at the Mille Lacs Academy, a treatment facility in Onamia, Minn. It "specializes in the treatment of boys and developmentally disabled boys ... who have exhibited harmful sexual behaviors," according to its website.

Raveill will spend the next six months at the academy and receive sex offender treatment, Cooper said. His commitment could be continued indefinitely after that, depending in large part on Raveill's success at treatment.

Criminal proceedings against Raveill could also be renewed if he is ever ruled competent enough to stand trial.
