Stewartville Man Sentenced in 2017 Rape Case
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Stewartville man has been sentenced to almost 5-years in prison for a conviction stemming from a sexual assault in Rochester.
22-year-old Isaiah McDaniel was in Olmsted County Court late Monday afternoon and was given a 57-month prison sentence. He was also ordered to submit a DNA sample and register as a predatory offender.
McDaniel early entered a Norgaard plea to a first-degree burglary charge involving an assault. The plea means he admits guilt but has no recollection of his actions because of intoxication. Two felony criminal sexual conduct charges and another burglary count were dismissed through the plea deal.
He was charged in the case last summer after DNA test results linked him to an attack on the woman in November of 2017. The victim told police she had placed a sign in the lobby of her downtown apartment complex offering some items for sale. When a stranger came to her door inquiring about one of the items, the woman indicated she closed the door but the man entered the residence and sexually assaulted her.
