State revokes counselor William Elwell’s license over sexual violations and child pornography

On July 11, 2012, the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy revoked counselor William Elwell’s license.

The Board’s document contains information about Elwell’s sexual contact with a teenage girl while he was a teacher, including excerpts of Internet chat sessions of a sexually explicit nature which Elwell carried on while he was working at Dakota Prairie Area Learning Center.

He was ultimately terminated from the position and surrendered his teaching license and was shortly after charged with solicitation of a child to engage in sexual conduct and possession of child pornography. Both charges were dismissed.

On his counseling license application, Elwell denied criminal charges and loss of license. Further, the Board’s document provides details about a 23-year-old female client with whom Elwell engaged in sexual intercourse with on several occasions, as well as another client upon whom he attempted or engaged in sexual contact. He was terminated from his position in both cases.
