District Judge Jon Stafsholt sentenced the 19-year-old Willmar man to 360 months in prison. Edinburgh was given credit for the 501 days he's already served, initially at the juvenile detention facility and then at the Kandiyohi County Jail.

If he serves two-thirds of that time, or 20 years, without an infraction, Edinburgh could be released on good behavior and serve the remainder of the sentence on supervised probation.

An appeal is expected.
