ROCHESTER, Minn. – One sentence is handed down for a violent robbery in Rochester.

Mitchell Neil Winslow, 23 of Rochester, was ordered Monday to spend 10 years on supervised probation and either pay a $500 fine or do 50 hours of community work service. He pleaded guilty to simple robbery in July for an incident on June 15.
