On Monday, August 1, 2011, Jeremy James Shoemaker of Zumbrota, age 27, appeared before Judge Robert Benson in the Fillmore County District Court for sentencing. Shoemaker pled guilty to theft, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in jail and $10,000. Brett Corson was the prosecuting attorney and Frederick Suhler, Jr. was the attorney for the defendant. Shoemaker was sentenced with 13 months in a correctional facility, but it was stayed for five years, and he was given probation. He also received credit for the 189 days already served. He must also pay a $1,085 in fines and surcharges, as well as restitution to the victim whose vehicle he stole. He must pay $750 for the insurance deductible, $500 for title replacement costs, and $1,000 for mileage put on the stolen vehicle.

Matthew Scott Stier, age 31 of Grand Meadow, made his first appearance before Judge Benson on August 1, 2011. Stier had been charged with fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, careless driving, operating an unregistered vehicle without plates, driving a motorcycle without an endorsement, and speeding. Fleeing a peace officer has a maximum penalty of five years in jail, $10,000, or both. The other charges each have a maximum penalty of 90 days, $1,000, or both. A police officer attempted to pull Stier over after clocking him going 75 miles per hour in a 55 mph speed zone. Stier allegedly fled, traveling speeds of up to 120 mph. He was caught in Spring Valley, where he admitted to fleeing to avoid being caught without a license and with an unregistered vehicle. Stier was released on his own recognizance on $10,000 unconditional bail. He must remain law-abiding and not leave Minnesota without permission. His next scheduled appearance is September 12, 2011.
