MSU Knife Assault Sentencing 04 Jun 13

A former MSU-Mankato student accused of assaulting another student with a knife last year was sentenced to 120 days in jail and 5 years of probation in Blue Earth County Court on Monday. 20-year-old Kevin Joseph Renquist of Bloomington pleaded guilty to felony 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon as part of a plea deal, and a terroristic threats charge was dismissed. The incident occurred in a library bathroom at MSU last November. Renquist told authorities he was “just trying to scare the kid.” He’s now been ordered to have no contact with the victim and continue to attend counseling.
