Two men sentenced in different crimes in Crow Wing

A 33-year-old Emily man was sentenced Wednesday in Crow Wing District Court to serve 50 months in prison for several burglary charges.

Charles Alvin Weber plead guilty to two counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree burglary and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle as part of a plea agreement that resolved several cases involving burglaries in Emily, reported the Crow Wing County Attorney’s Office.

Weber also was ordered to pay restitution to all victims identified in the pending cases and to pay statutory fines and surcharges.

Weber was seen in front of Judge Kristine DeMay. The cases were investigated by the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office and Emily Police Department.

The attorney’s office also reported on Thursday, Judge Earl E. Maus sentenced Justin Alan Hanson to 60 months in prison. Hanson will serve 40 months in prison and 20 months on supervised release if he has no disciplinary violations. A Crow Wing County jury found Hanson guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm following a trial in January.
