A Red Wing man was sentenced to three years in prison June 1 for his involvement in an armed robbery at a motel last January.
Jeremy Jake Clarin, 33, will serve 37 months at Minnesota Correctional Facility-St. Cloud. He pleaded guilty to a felony simple robbery charge April 23. As a result four other charges — including a first-degree aggravated robbery charge — were dropped.
Clarin was involved in a robbery Jan. 24 at Parkway Motel, 3425 Highway 61. According to a court complaint filed Jan. 30, Clarin punched the victim while a second man, Curtis Eugene Venzant, 30, allegedly robbed the victim at knifepoint.
Clarin reported to prison Monday. He will receive credit for 122 days already served. He must also pay $160 in fines and fees.
Venzant, Jennifer Nicole Staten, 32, Red Wing, and Amanda Marie Donaldson, 23, Rochester, were also arrested for their alleged involvement in the robbery.
Venzant pleaded guilty to second-degree aggravated robbery and will be sentenced July 13. Staten pleaded guilty to a felony fifth-degree drug possession charge and was sentenced to one year in Goodhue County Jail and 10 years’ probation. Donaldson pleaded guilty to a felony aiding an offender charge and was sentenced to 79 days in jail.
