Judge rejects guilty plea agreement
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A judge has taken the rare move of rejecting a negotiated plea agreement that would have allowed a man to avoid prison time for his role in a deadly attempted carjacking in Minneapolis. Hennepin County District Judge Michael Burns said Monday that he didn’t believe 20-year-old Husayn Braveheart would be amenable to probation or that he had a lesser role in the crime, as prosecutors and his public defender said. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Burns ordered a trial unless another agreement is reached before a Dec. 14 hearing. Braveheart said in court that he takes responsibility for his actions.
