Grand Meadow man sent to prison

A Grand Meadow man convicted of third-degree burglary in January was re-sentenced Wednesday to one year and a day in prison.

Quentin James Stejskal, 21, had violated his probation on at least two occasions, Mower County District Judge Fred Wellmann found.

Stejskal will receive credit for 92 days served.

He'd originally been sentenced in January to 30 days in jail and five years of supervised probation. Conditions of the probation included no use of alcohol or controlled substances; no use or possession of firearms or dangerous weapons; remain law-abiding; pay about $800 in restitution; obtain and maintain employment.

Stejskal was accused in August 2010 of stealing more than $350 worth of tools from a garage, then pawning the items to buy methamphetamine.


He pleaded guilty in November to third-degree burglary, while three other charges of misdemeanor theft, possession of a small amount of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed.
