38-year-old Matthew James Wrobleski of Willmar, was sentenced Thursday to 24 months in prison on a felony charge of check forgery for writing checks on another person’s account.
The West Central Tribune reports as part of his sentence handed down by District Judge Michael Thompson in Kandiyohi County District Court, Wrobleski was ordered to pay a $50 fine and given credit for 272 days already served in custody.
The sentence was ordered to be served concurrently with Wrobleski’s sentence in Renville County on felony charges of illegal possession of a firearm and motor vehicle theft for a weeks-long crime spree that ended in September with a police pursuit in Meeker County.
The Renville County sentencing was originally set for Tuesday and has now been set for July 23. On Tuesday, District Judge Randall Slieter conducted private discussions with attorneys in his chambers and later announced that the parties have issues to resolve regarding Wrobleski’s plea agreement before he can be sentenced.
