Shannon Pellet, Minot, sentenced to 146 days time served, 3 years probation, for burglary
Shannon David Pellett, 42, Minot, was sentenced on Wednesday to five years in prison, all suspended but the 146 days he has already served, and three years of supervised probation for burglarizing a garage on West Central Avenue in Minot on Nov. 24, 2019, and stealing a tree stand and other items and for burglarizing a farm in June 2020 and stealing items.
Under the terms of a plea deal with the state, Pellett was also ordered to pay $1,100 restitution for the 2019 burglary and $4,720 in restitution for the 2020 burglary. Judge Richard Hagar also ordered him to have no contact with the victims and to pay court costs.
Other charges against Pellett were dismissed under the terms of the plea deal.
One of his co-defendants in the burglary at the farm, Casey Blase Lemon, 39, was sentenced this spring to 18 months in prison, all suspended but the seven days he had already served in the Ward County Jail, and three years of supervised probation. Lemon had participated in the burglary and had been selling the items out of his garage. A second co-defendant, Michele Lee Pyle, 38, was sentenced last month to 18 months in prison, all suspended but the 186 days she had already served, and two years of supervised probation for her role in the burglary. She was also ordered to pay court costs and restitution yet to be determined. Her sentence is concurrent with a sentence on another unrelated charge.
