District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Jose Isidro Mireles, 37, of Willmar, was sentenced Tuesday to 25 months in prison and a $3,000 fine on a felony charge of violating a domestic assault no-contact order.

Mireles was given credit for 98 days already served in custody.

As part of a plea agreement, another felony for the same charge was dismissed.

According to the first complaint, Kandiyohi County sheriff’s deputies were called around 3:30 a.m. Sept. 6 to a Pennock residence. A woman there reported that Mireles, against whom she had a no-contact order, had attempted to kick in the door of the residence. The woman said that Mireles had repeatedly called her and then began pounding on her window and yelling her name.

The second complaint was filed after Sept. 13, when the woman reported that Mireles had called her and said he was coming to her home. A vehicle came to the driveway, but no one got out and the vehicle eventually left. The woman gave a description of the vehicle and a partial license plate and said he had likely take County Road 1 to state Highway 40 back to Willmar. A Willmar police officer located the vehicle along Highway 40 and stopped it, arresting Mireles on two outstanding warrants. He denied any contact with the woman.

The no-contact order prohibited Mireles from any contact with the woman and excluded him from her residence.

- Mathew Kern Hanson, 19, of Willmar, was sentenced Tuesday to 100 days in jail, $100 in fines, 100 hours of community work service and 10 years of probation on a fourth- and a fifth-degree drug sale charge for selling marijuana and prescription narcotics to a CEE-VI Drug Task Force informant.

Hanson was also ordered to pay $190 in restitution, follow the recommendations of a chemical use assessment, complete residential treatment and attend a cognitive skills program, along with submitting to testing and not using or possessing drugs or alcohol.

As part of a plea agreement, two additional felony charges for drug sales were dismissed.

According to the complaints, Hanson sold two bags containing marijuana on Nov. 6, 2011, and sold three Vicodin pills on Nov. 29, 2011, with both incidents happening at the Nest Lake access. The final charge was for selling eight Vyvanse tablets, a Schedule II narcotic, to an informant on May 11 in the parking lot of the Kandi Mall in Willmar.

- Martin Bravo, Jr., 19, of Willmar, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree.

He will be sentenced Feb. 27.

The charge was filed after county welfare investigators forwarded a birth certificate, for a child born in August, to Willmar police. The birth certificate listed Bravo as the father of the child, who was born to a 15-year-old girl. Paternity tests showed that Bravo was the father of child, with probability of 99.99 percent. Bravo was interviewed in the county jail, where he was held on an unrelated charge, and declined to give any information to the investigator.
