ALBERT LEA, Minn. – Exactly one year after a violent robbery and cross-border chase, a Freeborn County man is sentenced to prison.
Joshua James Allen, 32 of Albert Lea, received seven years and four months behind bars Monday, with credit for 364 days already served. He was convicted of 1st degree aggravated robbery and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle for an incident on June 24, 2018, where a man in Albert Lea was pistol whipped and had his television stolen.
