- A felony charge for assault and a gross misdemeanor charge against Joshua Wayne Roschild, 17, of Willmar, was dismissed Aug. 18.
Felony matters involving 16-and 17-year-olds are public record.
The charges were filed after Willmar police were called to an address on the southeast side on April 5 to investigate an assault. A youth there reported he had been assaulted by three individuals, including Roschild, near the Youth for Christ Warehouse, 601 Litchfield Ave. S.W. The boy, and others, parked their vehicle and were accosted by a girl and two boys, apparently over a video game system and comments made about someone's mother. The boy said he was punched and spit on as he attempted to get back into the vehicle. He said Roschild kicked the fender of the car and dented it as they were driving away.
Police interviewed a number of those involved and witnesses, one of which said Roschild didn't kick the vehicle, but an unidentified Hispanic male did.
- Culisa Ann Thomas, 38, of Willmar, was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to pay $347.29 in restitution on a felony charge of soliciting mentally impaired persons to commit a crime.
As part of a plea agreement, three felony charges of check forgery and a misdemeanor charge of financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult were dismissed. She also received a three-year stay of imposition on her sentence, so if she complies with the court's conditions, the conviction will be reduced to a misdemeanor.
In addition, she was ordered to serve 45 days in jail, with 15 days to serve immediately and two deferrable 15-day terms in March and September 2009. The terms can be deferred if she current on restitution payments and in compliance with all terms of probation.
Thomas was also ordered to serve 100 hours of community service, make reasonable efforts to obtain and maintain verifiable employment and write an apology letter
The charges were filed for cashing more than $1,700 in stolen checks in 2007 and enlisting the help of a mentally disabled person in cashing the checks.
