District Court, Kandiyohi County, Oct. 9

n Samuel Zelaya Pineda, 28, of Willmar, was sentenced Tuesday to a year and a day in jail, which was stayed, a $50 fine and five years of probation on a felony charge of falsely impersonating another.

He was ordered to serve 30 days in jail, with credit for 27 days already served, and to cooperate with agents from the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

A second charge of giving a false name to a judicial officer was dismissed.

The charges were filed after Willmar police received information from ICE on Feb. 15 that Pineda was living and working in Willmar under the name Javier Enrique Hernandez-Serrano.

He had appeared in court in May 2007 under that false name and his fingerprints matched FBI records under the Serrano name.

- Raymond Jo Matykiewicz, 19, of Renville, made his first appearance Monday on a felony charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly impregnating a 15-year-old girl.

He was released on his personal recognizance. His next court appearance is Dec. 10.

According to the complaint, on Aug. 14 a Willmar police detective learned from Kandiyohi County Family Services that a 15-year-old girl was 12-weeks pregnant and that Matykiewicz was the father. In an interview, the girl confirmed she was pregnant, that Matykiewicz was the father and that they had had sex at his family's home and at her family's home. She said she's known him for two years and that he knew she was 15 years old and that she is pregnant and due in February.

In an interview, Matykiewicz said they had consensual sex and that he knew she was 15 years old.

- Nicole Marie McAboy, 24, of Spicer, was sentenced Friday to 10 years of probation and a $1,000 fine on a felony charge of offering a forged check.

She was ordered to serve 14 days in jail, with credit for 14 days served, write a three-page paper, attend victim offender mediation and a property crime impact panel and complete the cognitive skills course through county probation. She received a 10-year stay of imposition on her sentence, so if she complies with the court conditions, the conviction will be reduced to a misdemeanor.

The charges were filed in 2005 after a family member reported that McAboy had forged more than $11,000 in checks on their account. The charges included $10,600 for a vehicle purchased in March 2005. She was interviewed and admitted to taking the checks and writing them.

Additional charges were filed after an ex-boyfriend reported that Nicole had used his credit cards without permission to purchase more than $1,000 in merchandise, food and services.
