Brent Gerald Jevne, 5l, was sentenced for a felony charge of third-degree possession of drugs, 10 grams or more of a narcotic drug other than heroin.

He was sentenced to 21 months in prison and stayed for five years.

Jevne was ordered to serve supervised probation for five years. Huber and Sentence to Serve privileges were granted if he qualifies. He was ordered to complete a comprehensive assessment and treatment aftercare.

As part of those cases, stays of adjudication had initially been granted for 48 months in prison and 58 months in prison, respec­tively.

The stays of adjudi­cation have since been changed to stays of execution. The 2022 case stemmed from a probation check on Aug. 25, 2022, at Jevne’s home. The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Minnesota Department of Corrections, participated in the probation check during which meth was found. Law enforcement then applied for and received a search warrant to search the rest of the residence. During the execution of the search warrant, a total of 12.7 grams of meth and $ 2,909 were seized.
