A Ramsey County district judge has sentenced a 21-year-old St. Paul woman to three years and five months in prison after she pleaded guilty Friday to assisting a home invasion in Roseville last December, the St. Paul Pioneer Press is reporting.
The sentence for Renesha Irma Motten came after she pleaded guilty in June to aiding and abetting first-degree aggravated robbery in connection with the home invasion of the Legacy Endeavors Group Home, the newspaper said.
