District Court, Kandiyohi County
- Sacha Mae Gravley, 26, of Spicer will serve a 30-day jail sentence as part of a sentence for a fifth-degree drug possession charge.
Gravley was arrested in July 2005 after a traffic stop in Willmar. A police dog found methamphetamine and related paraphernalia in her purse. She was found guilty of the drug possession charge in a February trial.
Judge Donald Spilseth sentenced her to pay a $1,000 fine plus court fees and to serve five years on probation. She received credit for one day already served in jail and will be eligible for the Sentence to Service or Community Service programs while in jail.
- A three-year prison sentenced was stayed for Lee Anthony Andrews, 32, of Spicer, who was convicted of a felony driving while intoxicated charge of refusing to submit to a chemical test.
Andrews was arrested in June 2005 when Kandiyohi County deputies saw him driving a John Deere tractor. When he saw the deputies, Andrews stopped the tractor and tried to hide behind the tractor, according to court files. He told them he had fought with his girlfriend, decided to leave, but took the tractor because he didn't have a valid driver's license. He told the deputies he knew he was "too drunk to drive." He had had three DWI convictions in the past 10 years.
Judge Donald Spilseth sentenced Andrews to three years in prison but stayed that on the condition he serve 180 days in jail and serve seven years on probation. Up to 60 days of the jail term may be spent on electronic home monitoring, and he will be eligible for work release and community service programs. He must also pay a $1,000 fine plus court fees.
- Todd Anthony Phelps, 27, of Willmar was sentenced to two years and three months in prison on a probation violation related to a 2002 second degree assault conviction.
Phelps was convicted in 2002 of threatening a woman with a knife. In 2004, he was convicted of violating an order for protection that required him to stay away from the same woman. According to court files, his original sentence was stayed, and after a series of probation violations, the stayed sentenced was continued and then revoked. He then received another stay of imposition of the sentence, which was also later revoked. In August 2005, he was arrested for assaulting a man in a Spicer bar.
Judge Michael Thompson sentenced him to serve the prison sentenced that was stayed in 2002. Phelps will receive credit for nearly 10 months he already served in jail on that charge. He was also sentenced to 30 days for violating the order for protection and to 200 days on a gross misdemeanor assault charge. Those sentences will run concurrently with the prison sentence.
