One person sentenced on felony charges

One person was sentenced on felony charges recently in Southeast District Court in Jamestown.

Michael Webster Ahrens, 18, a resident of the Stutsman County Correctional Center, pleaded guilty to robbery and criminal conspiracy to commit robbery. Ahrens was accused of conspiring with Darrell Boggs to commit robbery and of robbery in which he willfully inflicted bodily injury on the victim while being aided by an accomplice on April 25.

Both charges are Class C felonies punishable by five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Boggs was bound over for trial on 14 charges on June 16. He has pleaded not guilty. No trial date has been set.

Judge Thomas Merrick sentenced Ahrens to 94 days at the Stutsman County Correctional Center with credit for 94 days served. Ahrens was sentenced to three years of supervised probation and given a three-year deferred imposition of sentence.

Ahrens was ordered to pay a $650 criminal administration fee, $100 defense/facility administra- tion fee, $35 indigent defense application fee, $300 indigent recoupment and $25 victim-witness fee.

Merrick ordered Ahrens testify against Boggs should his case continue to trial.
