Man gets minimal sentence for role in Kalix caper

A 25-year-old Minot man will serve just one day in jail and two years of supervised probation for making an unauthorized withdrawal from the account of a Kalix resident on July 30, 2016. Kalix in Minot serves adults who have developmental disabilities.

Tre Kyzell Davis pleaded guilty to one count of Class C felony unauthorized use of personal identifying information in district court in Minot on Monday.

Judge Stacy Louser sentenced him to one year in jail, with a requirement that he serve the one day in jail he has already served, and two years of supervised probation. He must also pay $380 in restitution and using a credit card and $1,100 in court costs. If he successfully completes probation, the charge will appear on his record as a Class A misdemeanor.

The state dismissed a Class C felony theft charge against Davis.

Davis and his girlfriend, Sara Beth York, were charged as co-defendants in the case. York pleaded guilty to three counts of Class C felony theft of property and three counts of Class C felony unauthorized use of personal identifying information and was sentenced to a year and a day in jail for each offense. The sentences are being served concurrently. She will be on supervised probation for two years and must pay restitution and court costs.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, a Kalix employee reported that staff members discovered missing funds from the accounts of some of the residents. Davis was seen on security video at Racers in Minot making an unauthorized withdrawal from one account on July 30, 2016. Other unauthorized withdrawals were allegedly made by York at First Western Bank on Aug. 3, 2016 and Aug. 6, 2016 and at Kohl’s on Aug. 4, 2016.
