Plea Deal For Suspect in Dodge Center Incident
Mantorville, MN (KROC AM News) - A man accused of taking part in a violent incident in Dodge Center last month has pleaded guilty and already been sentenced to prison.
30 year old Shawn Clement pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm and was immediately sentenced to 5 years in prison. An aggravated robbery charge and two other counts were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Clement and 26 year old Tracy Brown were arrested September 7th after deputies found them at a Dodge Center home. A man at the house told the officers he had been robbed, pistol whipped and struck by a bat. The deputies searched the home and arrested Clement and Brown after finding four guns, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and stolen property in the residence.
Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose says the person who used the bat during the assault is still being sought and the case remains under investigation.
