Weather impacts sentencing for man who attacked priest in Anamoose


January 29, 2019

By Jack Springgate

The wintry weather prompted the courts to cancel Tuesday’s sentencing for a Minnesota man accused of attacking an Anamoose priest a year ago.

43-year-old Chad Legare was supposed to be sentenced today for his assault on Father Robert Wapenski.

Legare originally pleaded not guilty to three felony charges before changing to an Alford plea on an attempted murder charge in November.

Two lesser charges were dropped.

Legare remains in custody in Rugby.
