just over four years. With good behavior, even less time. He will have the maximum of 10 years on the sex offender registration after release. The sentence alone is alarming. However, what's worse is how he remained free over 90% of the over a year it took to convict (this is common throughout the state). The only reason he spent 42 days in jail, as opposed to none, was because he had two conditional release violations and a total of three warrants out for his arrest during this period of time. Yet time after time the judicial system and weak MN sex offender law let him back out. It all started with the weak charges of only 3 degree criminal sexual conduct of a mentally impaired or helpless victim, stalking, and burglary. The final two charges were dropped to add insult to injury for the rape victim and rape victims across the state. The lawyer representing him was Kevin McHugh Morrison.
video recorded himself threatening to kill the victim;
broke into her home;
was found with child porn videos;
and violated condition of release twice... not to mention his criminal past of multiple DWIs and violating restraining order... What rapist can our system serve justice to?
