Robert O. Bollett – Life in prison for child molesting

Robert O. Bollett, 43, is thought to be one of the first criminals given a life sentence under a 2005 state law passed in the wake of college student Dru Sjodin’s murder. He will be eligible for parole in 12 years.

The law toughened sentencing guidelines, allowing a maximum sentence of life without parole — the most severe penalty in Minnesota — for certain sex crimes involving “heinous” elements such as multiple victims or torture.

Bollett pleaded guilty in January to two counts of criminal sexual conduct involving two brothers in a family he lived with for a short time.

According to court documents, their mother told police last fall that she found Bollett in bed with her older son, sexually assaulting her younger son and in the shower with both boys.
