Correction: Assault in Stearns County Courtroom
ST. CLOUD — We have a correction to make in our story about the assault that happened in a Stearns County courtroom yesterday (Tuesday).
Thirty-two year old Shawn Skinner of Willmar was in the courtroom because he was asking for an order for protection be issued against another man. When the judge did not grant the order, that’s when Skinner walked over to the man an attacked him.
We had incorrectly previously said the other man was seeking the order of protection against Skinner.
Skinner was jailed and now faces a charge of 5th degree assault and disorderly conduct.
