- Nevin Joseph Rogalski, 21, of New London, was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in jail, a $750 fine and five years of probation on an amended charge of aiding and abetting/fifth-degree drug sale for his role in selling marijuana to a CEEVI Drug Task Force informant.

Rogalski was also ordered to follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment, not use or possess drugs or alcohol, submit to random testing and pay restitution, which was reserved for 30 days.

Rogalski and Jeramiah Mark Sommers, 20, of New London, were charged in the case. Sommers pleaded guilty to a charge of fifth-degree drug sale and will be sentenced March 6.

 According to the complaint, the informant arranged to purchase 4.4 grams of marijuana for $60 from Rogalski on June 13, 2012, in the parking lot of the county office building in downtown Willmar. The informant told agents that Sommers handed him the marijuana and took the money, while Rogalski was inside the county building.

- Eric Anguiano, 16, who is at the Valley Lakes Boys Home in Breckenridge, was sentenced Thursday to probation until his 19th birthday, 40 hours of community service and treatment at the boys home program on a felony theft charge for burglarizing a Willmar residence in October.

Two additional felony charges of second- and third-degree burglary were dismissed. He was also ordered to pay $3,216.41 jointly with his two codefendants.

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

According to the petition, the burglary was reported to Willmar Police on Oct. 29, when the residents of a home in the northwest quadrant of the city arrived at their home to find items missing and a basement window broken. The missing items included a laptop, tablet computer, DVD player, clothing and bottles of liquor. The estimated value of the items was more than $5,000.

The investigation determined that Anguiano and two others had burglarized the home after they learned that the family members would be away from the house all day. Items, including the tablet computer and clothing, were recovered from Anguiano’s residence and the residence of another teen involved in the incident.

Officer interviewed the teens and learned that Anguiano acted as a lookout for the other two, who entered the home and took the items, because the girl was mad at the teen who lived at the home because she liked the girl’s boyfriend. The girl turned over a bag of items determined to be stolen from the house.
