Sentencing delayed in local probation-violation case

Sentencing has been delayed for a Mitchell man facing a drug-related probation violation and a separate burglary charge.

In April, Trevor Kohlrus, 20, pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary for entering a woman's home on Feb. 5 and taking a video game system and a 42-inch television. Then in May, Kohlrus admitted to smoking marijuana while on probation as a result of another conviction for marijuana possession and distribution, which he pleaded guilty to last June.

Sentencing in both cases was set for Tuesday, but Judge Tim Bjorkman chose to delay sentencing until July and release Kohlrus and place him on supervision.

Bjorkman added several new conditions to Kohlrus' supervision, including that he be reassessed for chemical dependency, maintain his full-time employment, checks in weekly with court services, and complete moral recognition and ADHD therapy.
