Assault Conviction Results in Prison Time For Rochester Man
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man is headed to prison for his role in an assault and robbery that left the victim with a broken leg even though he wasn't the person responsible for the fracture.
21-year-old Shun Johnson was sentenced yesterday to just over 3-years in prison for his conviction on a second-degree assault charge. He pleaded guilty last November just before his trial was scheduled to get under in Olmsted County Court.
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 2017. 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. Maclin previously pleaded guilty in the case and was given a stayed prison sentence.
Johnson has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of simple robbery stemming from a robbery and shooting in Zumbrota in December of 2017. He is scheduled to be sentenced in that case at the end of the month.
