Court Actions - Jan. 10

The following recently were sentenced in Crow Wing District Court:

Misty D. Lakin, 36, Brainerd, was sentenced by Judge Earl Maus to 17 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, with sentence stayed for five years, for felony registering as an ineligible voter.

Daniel B. Henke, 54, Buffalo, was sentenced by Judge Kristine DeMay to one year in Crow Wing County Jail, with sentence stayed for three years, for gross misdemeanor driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Daniel L. Payne, III, 35, was sentenced by Maus to 20 years of supervised probation for first-degree burglary. The sentence is a stay of imposition and if Payne is successful in completing his probation his felony will result in a misdemeanor conviction.

Russell L. Keniston, 31, Mankato, was sentenced by DeMay to 90 days in county jail, with sentence stayed for two years, for misdemeanor DWI.

Robert T. Morrison, 47, Brainerd, was sentenced by Judge Richard Zimmerman to 90 days in county jail, with sentence stayed for two years, for misdemeanor DWI.

Editor’s note: In court terms, when a person is sentenced and given a time that is “stayed,” it means that if the person violates the terms of their probation, that they may have to serve the original jail/prison sentence that the judge imposed.
