Judge verbally lashes out at convicted Valleyfair assault defendants, sentences only probation

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Six young men were spared prison Tuesday for their role in the beating of an Apple Valley father at Valleyfair Amusement Park in Shakopee last summer, but all were promised to see more time behind bars if they screw up on probation.

The men, who are all related, received varying sentences based on their criminal past and involvement in the Fourth of July brawl, with five years of probation, but ranging from 90 to 225 days in custody, with credit for time already served. They previously pleaded guilty to third-degree assault in Scott County District Court in Shakopee as part of plea agreements.
