Nicholas R. Schnack

A former University of St. Thomas football player was sentenced to a year in the Ramsey County workhouse for the 2018 dorm room rape of a fellow student.

Nicholas Robert Schnack, 22, was convicted of rape in October and remained free on bond until his sentencing Friday in Ramsey County District Court. Judge Joy Bartscher ordered Schnack to 30 years' supervised probation and imposed a $500 fine along with his yearlong confinement in the Ramsey County Correctional Facility, otherwise known as the workhouse.

Bartscher stayed a 12-year prison sentence, a downward departure from state guidelines.
