District Court

Kandiyohi County

n Yolanda Marie Radzhabov, 23, of Willmar, made her first appearance Tuesday on two felony charges of fourth-degree assault of a peace officer for her actions toward a Minnesota State Patrol trooper early Saturday morning.

Unconditional bail was set at $15,000. Her next appearance is Oct. 29. She also faces a gross misdemeanor charge of obstructing the legal process.

According to the complaint, a Kandiyohi County Sheriff's deputy was near Zorbaz around 2 a.m. Saturday and saw a man drive a vehicle up to the entrance of the establishment to pick up a group of people. The deputy recognized the man and confirmed that he was driving with a revoked license.

The deputy followed the vehicle onto County Road 19 and conducted a traffic stop. The trooper also responded to assist the deputy with the stop. While the deputy was attempting to arrest another passenger in the vehicle, Radzhabov alleged punched the trooper in the face, hit him in the chest and took an aggressive fighting stance before she was tased. She fell to the ground, but kept cursing the officer. She spit on the trooper and then was contained in a device called a "spit hood" by other responding officers.

The trooper also sustained cuts and scratches on his face and wrist.

n Heidi Sue Roggenkamp, 38, of Glenwood, was sentenced to 101 days in jail, a $500 fine and 10 years of probation on a felony charge of theft by swindle for taking thousands of dollars from her employer.

Roggenkamp was ordered to serve 21 days in jail, with the remaining jail time staggered over the next three years. She was also ordered to pay restitution, which wasn't specified in the sentencing order, but amounted to $43,478.62, according to an affidavit of restitution filed in the case. She was ordered to complete a mental health evaluation and a gambling assessment, but is allowed to gamble if there is no financial risk to herself. If she wins, all the proceeds must be applied to her restitution payments.

As part of a plea agreement, two additional felony charges of theft by swindle were dismissed.

The charges were filed after the owner of Dan's Diesel Service in Sunburg reported to the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office in December that suspicious checks had been written by his bookkeeper, Roggenkamp.

Roggenkamp had worked for the business since April 2010 and was allowed to write and sign checks. The suspicious activity included checks written to Roggenkamp for large amounts of money, more than for the hours she worked for the business, and carbon copies of checks that indicated checks had been altered after they were taken from the checkbook.

The investigation revealed $11,661.39 in overpayments between July and December 2010, $15,407.12 between January and June 2011 and $17,007.14 between July and December 2011.

Roggenkamp was interviewed and admitted to making the overpayments to herself because of medical issues. She said she would make arrangements to pay the money back and requested that she be taken to the local crisis center, where she checked herself into the facility.
