Two Minneapolis Attacks Nets 11-Year Sentence for Sex Offender
Two sexual assaults on two women has sent a Robbinsdale man to prison for the next 11 years.
Anthony Legrette, we, was sentenced in July for two sexual assaults that took place in Minneapolis on two women. Legrette was also sentenced seven years for burglary, which stems from the second assault. The burglary sentence will run concurrently with the 11-year sentence.
Legrette entered a June 28th guilty plea to burglary and second-degree criminal sexual conduct, resulting in Judge David Piper giving him a total of 11 years in prison, with conditional release that will last his entire life.
According to reports, Farrar followed a woman off of a bus on March 22nd near the University of Minnesota. He then forced her to go between two buildings, which is where he groped her. The woman says she screamed and fought to the point that someone looked out of a window in their home. That is when Farrar fled.
Late the next morning, Farrar entered a woman’s unlocked apartment where he told the woman he was looking for Ian. When she told him to leave because he had the wrong apartment, he put a hand over her mouth and began dragging her. She fought him, banged his head against a wall, and made an escape. He then grabbed a messenger bag containing her cellular phone, papers, and headphones, and fled the apartment.
Farrar was initially charged with first-degree burglary in the second assault and first-degree aggravated robbery with second-degree attempted criminal sexual conduct. His guilty plea reduced those charges.
Just last fall, he pleaded guilty to groping a Roseville woman, a fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charge. He was then placed on 10 years of supervised probation and required to register as a sex offender.
