Plea Deal Cancels Rochester Man’s Trial
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man has admitted to a felony assault charge for his involvement in an assault and robbery that left the victim with a broken leg.
21-year-old Shun Johnson was accused of being with 20-year-old Kenneth Maclin when he used a baseball bat to break a man’s leg during an assault by several men in July of last year. The victim also reported Maclin and the other attackers went through his pockets and stole some of his property before they drove away in a vehicle that investigators later determined had been stolen.
Johnson, who was scheduled to go on trial in Olmsted County Court this week, is scheduled to be sentenced for the second-degree assault conviction on January 14th. He still faces charges in Goodhue County stemming from a robbery and shooting in Zumbrota last December.
Maclin previously pleaded guilty in the case and was given a stayed prison sentence.
