District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Jordan Craig Rue, 22, of Redwood Falls, was sentenced Tuesday to 86 days in jail, a $1,000 fine and five years of probation on a third-degree assault charge for hitting a man during a bar fight and breaking the man’s nose.

Rue was also ordered to follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment, have no contact with the victim, not use or possess alcohol or drugs and submit to a mental health evaluation. He was given credit for 86 days already served in custody.

The charge was filed after Kandiyohi County sheriff’s deputies were called on June 23, 2012, to Zorbaz in Spicer regarding an assault. A man there reported that he had attempted to break up a bar fight between two women and that he had been hit in the nose and thought it was broken. Two security officers told deputies that Rue was the man who hit the victim in the face.

- Ivan Nathan Hennessey, 20, of Willmar, was sentenced Tuesday to 180 days in jail, a $1,000 fine and five years of probation on a third-degree charge of criminal sexual conduct.

Hennessey was also ordered to have no contact with the victim or anyone under 18 years of age, register as a predatory offender, complete adult sex offender treatment, get counseling and not possess any pornographic or sexually explicit material.

As part of a plea agreement, three additional charges of third-degree criminal sexual conduct were dismissed.

The charges were filed after April 25, 2012, when a 15-year-old girl reported to the Willmar Police officer working as the student resource officer at Willmar High School that she had been abused by another high school student. The girl reported that she’d gone to Hennessey’s home in Willmar on April 13 and 14 and he’d forced her to have sex, even though she’s said no and pushed him away.

The girl reported that, on April 13, she and Hennessey were watching a movie and that he forced himself on her, but then drove her home, apologized to her and said he wouldn’t do that again.

The next day, she agreed to return to Hennessey’s home, believing that his family members would be home and that he wouldn’t do anything to her while others were at the house. The girl said that she tried to push Hennessey away from her and told him to stop.

The girl had told two friends, who had encouraged her to talk to someone about the incidents. The friends were also interviewed by police.
