Former Watson, Minn., mayor admits guilt in breaking into current mayor's home

 


MONTEVIDEO, Minn. – Described at the time as believing the western Minnesota town had “a conspiracy going against him,” the former mayor of Watson pleaded guilty earlier this month to breaking into the current mayor’s home in March.

Joseph Mark Rongstad, 34, will be sentenced Dec. 13 on a felony charge of third-degree burglary. As part of an Oct. 10 plea agreement, additional charges of felony first-degree burglary and misdemeanor trespassing will be dismissed.

Rongstad was also facing charges from February for allegedly firing a rifle through the sunroof of his truck, saying, according to court documents, that he was “trying to get away from the corpses that were after him.”
