Nemmers ordered to serve jail time
WILLMAR -- Terry Dean Nemmers, 45, of Glenwood, the man who mocked the court during his March trial for forging license plates, has been or-dered to serve time in prison for violating the conditions of his probation.
On Wednesday, Judge Frank A. Kundrat ordered the stay of execution to be revoked on Nemmers' jail sentence of one year and one day, based on his possession of firearms and ammunition. Nemmers was given credit for the 104 days he's already served in jail.
Based on a tip from a Willmar gun store owner, Nemmers was arrested July 20 at his home in rural Glenwood. Pope County deputies found 20 guns and 10,000 rounds of ammunition and more than $1,100, in small bills from $1 to $20, in Nemmers' bedroom.
Nemmers was recently released from the Kandiyohi County for serving a four-month sentence for felony aggravated forgery for creating fake license plates that read "John 7:24" on his vehicle. He was also convicted of attempting to evade taxes by failing to register his car, a gross misdemeanor.
During his trial in March, Nemmers was uncooperative and Judge Donald Spilseth found him in contempt of court. During the trial, he wore a T-shirt that said "No Kangaroo Court" and recited Bible verses to the judge.
