WILLMAR -- Dustin Joseph Woodworth, 18, of Marshall and formerly of Willmar, was sentenced this morning to stayed prison time, 45 days in the county jail, a $500 fine and five years of probation on a felony damage to property charge for vandalizing the KMS Elementary School in Murdock last summer.

The sentence, handed down by Judge David L. Mennis in Swift County District Court, also ordered Woodworth to pay $5,000 in restitution, jointly with his co-defendant in the case, Cody Lee Friese, 18, of Willmar.

As part of a plea agreement reached Jan. 2, a felony charge of second-degree burglary of a government, religious, historic or school building was dismissed. Woodworth was ordered to write a letter of apology to the school district, to be approved by his probation officer, undergo a psychological evaluation and follow the recommendations, and get his GED within 12 months.

Woodworth and Friese were both charged with two felonies after the Aug. 6 incident. Friese's next court appearance is a settlement conference scheduled for next Tuesday.
