A Minneapolis woman will spend eight months in jail and four years on probation for her role in a September burglary in Superior’s Allouez neighborhood.
Cherilyn Ann Mayotte, 35, pleaded guilty in Douglas County Circuit Court on June 17 to one count of burglary as a party to a crime. A second count was dismissed.
Along with jail and probation, Mayotte was ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation, pay $3,000 restitution, have no contact with the victim or four co-defendants and provide a DNA sample.
Circuit Court Judge George Glonek left a prison sentence hanging over her head — three years confinement and two years of extended supervision — if Mayotte fails to follow conditions of probation.
A joint investigation by law enforcement agencies in two states led to the arrest of Mayotte and four others suspected of being part of a sophisticated burglary ring from the Twin Cities. Surveillance and investigation linked the five to the substantial burglary in Superior. Calls between Mayotte and jailed co-defendants helped finger her as part of the burglary ring.
In addition, co-defendant Timothy Michael Klieb, 46, of Brooklyn Center, Minn., told police that Mayotte helped case the Superior home for the burglary.
One co-defendant, Jason Michael Mussehl, 42, of Montrose, Minn., was convicted of burglary and is serving a seven-year sentence — 42 months confinement and 42 months extended supervision.
Klieb and another suspect, 35-year-old Julia Jean Julien of Sauk Rapids, Minn., have court appearances scheduled for Aug. 2. A trial for another suspect, Rex Alan Lee, 61, of Minneapolis, is set for September.
