MENOMONIE — A felony count of burglary has been dismissed for a former Wheeler man charged in connection with thefts from the Boyceville fire department concession stand after paying $797.50 in restitution.
Micah A. Minor, 22, appeared in Dunn County Circuit Court by video conferencing from the Racine Youthful Offender Correctional Facility on April 15 before Judge James Peterson.
Restitution has been paid, said Dunn County Assistant District Attorney Andrew Maki, who moved that the felony count of burglary be dismissed.
Minor was ordered by the court to pay restitution of $797.50 during a hearing in Dunn County Circuit Court April 18, 2017.
Minor was sentenced in St. Croix County in January of 2017 to one year and two months of confinement and two years of extended supervision for animal cruelty resulting in death and was sentenced to two years in prison and four years of probation for sexual assault and child enticement in Dunn County in April of 2017.
The Dunn County sentence was consecutive to the sentence in the St. Croix County case involving animal cruelty so that all together, between the Dunn County case and the St. Croix County case, Minor was sentenced to three years and two months in prison and six years of extended supervision.
Minor, along with several others, was arrested on charges related to the theft of about $3,000 worth of sound equipment from the Boyceville fire department’s concession stand at the Boyceville airport in the summer of 2016.
According to the Dunn County criminal complaint, the sexual assault Minor perpetrated occurred at a house in the Town of Otter Creek.
Judge Peterson ordered Minor to register as a sex offender for 15 years.
According to news reports, in the St. Croix County case, Minor told investigators he had been at a residence in Glenwood City and had knocked a loaded gun to the floor, that the gun had accidentally discharged and had struck a cat.
Investigators could find no evidence of an animal having been wounded inside the residence but discovered a bullet hole on the outside of the house, and the cat was found dead outside.
