Wrobleski sentenced to 39 months, 92 months stayed in Renville Co., Minn., crime spree

OLIVIA -- Matthew James Wrobleski, 39, of Willmar, was sentenced this morning to 39 months in prison, with another 92-month prison sentence stayed and up to 15 years of probation, for a series of crimes committed last September in Renville County.

The sentence was handed down by District Judge Randall Slieter in Renville County District Court, on charges of second-degree burglary, motor vehicle theft and possession of a gun by a convicted felon. The charges were filed after a weeks-long, multi-county crime spree that included multiple motor vehicle thefts, burglaries and fleeing from law enforcement.

Wrobleski, who is already in prison at the Minnesota Corrections Facility at Moose Lake on charges filed in Meeker and Kandiyohi counties, was given credit for 381 days already served in custody. His new sentence will be served concurrently, or at the same time, as the 39-month Meeker County sentence, on a felony theft charge, and the 24-month Kandiyohi County sentence, on a felony check forgery charge.
