Iowa Teen Pleads Guilty to Huge Rochester Vandalism Case
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - An Iowa teenager has admitted taking part in a huge vandalism case in Rochester earlier this year, one of the largest in city history.
Pleading guilty in Olmsted County juvenile court was 18-year-old Kristopher Hanley of Cresco.
Police eventually identified four Iowa teenagers as the suspected vandals and two were charged. The other suspect charged in the case was Tyler Dozark of Cresco. He is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing in January. Dozark is also 18-years-old. Both teens were 17 at the time of the vandalism.
Their son’s age proved to be a big relief for Hanley’s parents. Under state law, the parents are only responsible for a maximum of $5,000 restitution.
