Monday, May 22, 2012, Gerald Lloyd Casler, 20 of Rochester, appeared before Judge Robert Benson for sentencing in the Fillmore County Court. Casler was found guilty of Drugs in the 5th degree, possession of not a small amount of marijuana, which has a maximum sentence of five years in jail, $10,000 fine, or both.

Casler was sentenced to the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud for 19 months, which was stayed for five years. He must serve 180 days in the Fillmore County Jail on work release, and was given credit for 16 days already served. He must also pay $1,240 in fines and fees.

Cody Allen Zappa-Wrubel, 18, of Chatfield, made a first appearance before Judge Benson on May 21, 2012. Zappa-Wrubel was charged with Burglary in the 3rd degree, which has a maximum penalty of five years in jail, $10,000, or both. He was also charged with theft and damage to property, each holding a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail, $1,000 or both. He also appeared before Judge Benson for three counts of check forgery and one count of theft by check. All of the charges stem from an incident in which Zappa-Wrubel allegedly broke into his parents’ home and stole several blank checks. He then allegedly wrote the checks out to local businesses. He allegedly damaged the garage door at his parents’ home when he broke in.

Zappa-Wrubel was released on his own recognizance with $10,000 unconditional bail, and he must not enter the property of his parents without their permission. His next court appearance is June 4, 2012.

She faced three charges of Assault in the second degree with a dangerous weapon, with a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail, $20,000 or both, one count of Assault in the 3rd degree, and one count of disorderly conduct. The charges stem from an incident in Chatfield at Shari’s Sports Saloon when Root allegedly threw a beer bottle, intending to hit a man who was assaulting a friend of hers, missing him and hitting a woman standing nearby. The woman received six stitches and had two broken bones in her nose.

Root was released on her own recognizance with $10,000 unconditional bail. Her next court appearance is August 8, 2012.
