No more tolerance for domestic violence in Maplewood

Joint prosecution project is holding more offenders accountable

Committing acts of domestic violence and skirting jail time had become somewhat of a routine for Anthony Lester, 33. By early January, he had five domestic assault charges on his record that had all been dismissed.
With only one domestic assault conviction from 2005, the odds appeared to be in his favor.
All that changed when assistant Ramsey County attorney Anna Christie took an interest in Lester, tracking his actions in White Bear Lake and then Maplewood.

A truck and the spare time are all one man says he needs to help
It was just after 9:15 a.m. on Oct. 27, a couple hours into the final farmers market of the year at the Catholic Church of Corpus Christi in Roseville, and Gerry Sande was confident he'd met his goal.
"Beautifully," Sande said when asked how the day was going, as he stood in front of his red pickup truck that sported a sign listing the total pounds of donated food he'd collected from customers and vendors at the seasonal market this year.

The Fox Cities area is full of surprises
