Numerous domestic abuse convictions lead to prison sentence for St. Paul man
A St. Paul man has been sent to prison for violating a domestic-abuse-no-contact order. He had four previous convictions related to domestic assault.
BENSON — A St. Paul man has been sentenced to prison for violating a domestic-abuse-no-contact order, a felony, in 2018.
Shane Allen Fellers, 41, was arrested July 27, 2018, after he was pulled over for speeding in Swift County.
This week, Fellers received a 29-month prison sentence in Swift County District Court. He received credit for 397 days of time already served in jail, a little more than 13 months.
By state law, he must be incarcerated for a minimum of two-thirds of his sentence and may serve the remaining third on supervised release.
When Fellers was pulled over for speeding in 2018, he admitted to the officer that he didn’t have a driver’s license. The officer also learned of a domestic-abuse-no-contact order prohibiting Fellers from having any contact with the passenger in his vehicle.
He was arrested for violating the order and cited for driving after revocation.
The Minnesota Department of Corrections website lists an anticipated release date of Nov. 23, 2020, for Fellers.
Fellers had four previous domestic violence-related convictions, in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2015.
