A plea agreement reached Tuesday in Renville County spares Matthew Wrobleski the longer prison sentence the prosecution originally sought, but it tacks on up to 15 years of probation during which he could be sent back to prison for any infractions. The West Central Tribune reports District Judge Randall Slieter sentenced the 39-year-old Wrobleski, previously of Olivia and Willmar, to 92 months in prison for conviction on a charge of felon in possession of a gun. It’s the charge that carried the most severe penalty from a crime spree in Renville County in the summer of 2011.
The judge stayed execution of the 92-month sentence, but ordered that Wrobleski serve a total of 39 months in prison for second-degree burglary and motor vehicle theft convictions. The time can be served concurrently — at the same time, rather than one after the other — with a 39-month Meeker County sentence and 24-month Kandiyohi county sentence he is currently serving at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Moose Lake.
Wrobleski had served 381 days in prison as of the sentencing, and was given credit for the time.
The judge also required that Wrobleski serve up to 15 years on probation after his release from prison. Any infractions would result in the execution of the remainder of the prison sentence.
The court also ordered that he pay restitution to victims, but the amount must yet be determined.
