Posted in Court

Steve Clifford Johnson appeared before Judge Robert Benson in District Court on Monday, July 12, 2010, for sentencing. Frederick Suhler, Jr. was the defense attorney in this case; Brett Corson was the prosecuting attorney.

Based on the defendant's plea of guilty entered on June 3, 2010, to a felony charge of controlled substance in the fifth degree, possession, and a misdemeanor violation of a harassment restraining order, count 2, the court made the judgment of guilty and ordered the defendant be committed to the Commissioner of Corrections for 12 months and one day with at least two-thirds of that time served in prison and one-third on supervised release. Execution of commitment was stayed for five years and the defendant was placed on supervised probation. He must, however, serve 180-days in the Fillmore County jail with a Huber release and credit for 52 days previously served. Ninety days of this time must be served immediately and the remaining 90 days has been stayed for one year. Beginning August 15, Mr. Johnson may serve his time at the rate of five days a month in jail. Defendant was also fined $300.00.

On Mnday, July 12, 2010, Debra Jean McCabe, a 49-year old white female from LeRoy, MN, appeared before Judge Robert R. Benson in District Court facing four counts that included: financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult, wrongfully obtaining assistance, perjury and wrongfully obtaining assistance. If convicted on all four counts, Ms. McCabe could face a maximum penalty of up to 40 years in prison, fines amounting to $140,000 or both.

From March 2007 to June 2010, the defendant allegedly, in the absence of legal authority, acquired funds from a vulnerable adult amounting to more than $35,000 from funds transferred from a CD, the sale of the victim's home, and checks written out to herself from the victim's checking account. Furthermore, the defendant allegedly obtained assistance for the victim from the county amounting to over $50,000 for which she was not eligible, by concealing the truth regarding her financial status.

Attorney Frederick S. Suhler is representing Ms. McCabe, who denies the charges and says the victim in this case gave her authority over her finances, and the money was used for these services and to pay the bills for the alleged victim. Ms. McCabe was released on her own recognizance and Judge Benson set unconditional bail at $20,000. Her next court appearance is scheduled for July 19, 2010. < .....
