Lapenotiere convicted of third degree burglary

A Little Falls man was convicted Sept. 25 in Morrison County District Court, with third degree burglary.

Edward John Lapenotiere Jr. 20, was arrested following a Jan. 12 incident at an apartment in Little Falls, during which an assault occurred.

The victim reported being at home when Lapenotiere, 20, and another man entered, stating they had unfinished business with the victim’s brother. A witness said Lapenotiere was standing behind her and holding her hips to prevent her from helping the victim.

Lapenotiere was sentenced to 30 days and supervised probation for five years.
