District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Jason William Power, 30, of St. Cloud, was sentenced Monday to 60 months in prison on a felony charge of possessing a pistol or assault weapon after he was convicted of a violent crime.

Power had received a stayed sentence in April 2007 for the September 2006 incident. The stay of execution on his sentence was revoked due to probation violations, including positive drug tests, driving violations and not keeping in contact with his probation agent.

He was given credit for 121 days already served and ordered to pay his $1,500 fine with prison earnings.

Power was charged after Sept. 3, 2006, when a Minnesota State Patrol trooper stopped a vehicle along U.S. Highway 12 in Kandiyohi after receiving a report that Power had been hunting geese in rural Atwater. Power was found in possession of a 12-gauge shotgun, shells and a marijuana pipe.

Power's right to possess a firearm was restricted after two previous convictions, for gun possession in November 2000 in Kandiyohi County and for burglary in December 2000 in Swift County.

- Jacob Thomas Dahlheimer, 23, of Willmar, made his first appearance Wednesday on three felony charges of domestic assault by strangulation and terroristic threats.

Unconditional bail was set at $50,000 with conditional bail allowed for $3,000 cash. He also faces two misdemeanor charges of domestic assault. His next appearance is April 11.

According to the complaint, Willmar police responded to the report of a domestic incident around 6 p.m. Monday at the Viking Motel along Business 71. A woman there reported that she'd argued with Dahlheimer since Sunday evening, that he'd been drinking and that he attempted to strangle her with his hands. She also said that he threatened to kill her twice, once while strangling her and once while leaving after law enforcement was called.

Dahlheimer was located walking along the highway and arrested. He allegedly claimed that he didn't assault or threaten the woman.
