District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Skyler Michael Larson, 17, of Willmar, was sentenced Thursday to six months of probation and 32 hours of community service on a felony charge of possessing a dangerous weapon on school property for having a knife in his pocket at Willmar High School.

Adjudication was withheld on Larson's sentence, meaning that he is not convicted of a felony charge. He was also ordered to attend school and work up to his ability, not ship, transport, possess or receive firearms or ammunition and cooperate with a referral to counseling.

Felony charges against 16-and 17-year-olds are public record.

The charge was filed after Feb. 17, when school officials notified the Willmar Police officer working as the school resource officer, that they suspected Larson had contraband on him. A school official questioned the boy, who handed over a marijuana pipe, several half-smoked cigarettes and a lock-blade knife with a 3½- inch blade. The officer questioned Larson, who admitted he knew he had the knife in his pocket and also knew he wasn't supposed to have it at school.

- Charlene Marie Johnson, 17, of Willmar, made her first appearance Monday on a felony charge of third-degree assault for allegedly spreading her bodily fluids on another girl's toiletries.

She pleaded not guilty to the charge and makes her next court appearance on Oct. 18.

Felony charges against 16-and 17-year-olds are public record.

According to the petition, Willmar Police were called on July 8 to the Prairie Lakes Youth Programs girls group home in Willmar.

Johnson was interviewed and allegedly admitted to the actions and that she has herpes. She said the actions were taken about a week after the girl arrived at the group home.
