Telleen wrestled with Hasenmiller’s sentencing, saying that while he does not like to send 18-year-olds to prison, he did not want him to get off scott free either.
“I think this is pretty low, as you can tell,” Telleen said.
He decided to follow Cronk’s wishes and granted Hasenmiller a deferred judgment for each charge. He was ordered to pay a $750 civil penalty for each count, with one suspended. Telleen also ordered him to pay $375 in restitution to Citizens First Bank.
Telleen advised the defendant that he is not entitled to anything in this life, except what he works for. He added that Hasenmiller should cut a lot of grass and shovel a lot of snow for his grandmother after his time in the RCF.
