ROCHESTER, Minn. – A second sentence is handed out in a case of drugs and uninvited guests in Byron.

Lucas James McNiff, 22 of Mantorville, was ordered Monday to spend 20 years on supervised probation and either do 100 hours of community work service or pay a $1,000 fine. McNiff pleaded guilty in August to 3rd degree drug possession. He received a stay of adjudication, which means this conviction will be removed from his record if he fulfills the terms of his probation.


Matthew Sorensen

He and Matthew Sorenson of Mankato were arrested in June after law enforcement was notified of people going in and out of a Byron house despite the homeowner being gone. Authorities say McNiff and Sorenson were found inside with pills, cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and $790 in cash.

Sorenson previously pleaded guilty to 5th degree drug possession. He got a stay of adjudication as well, along with five years of probation and either a $500 fine or 50 hours of community service.
