BURNETT COUNTY -- The Court has ordered Jonathan Laboda to serve time in prison on his conviction in a Burnett county burglary case.

DrydenWire.com reported in January 2019 that Laboda, of Vadnais Heights, MN, was facing charges following an investigation into a break-in at the Tesora restaurant in Siren, WI in December 2018.

A safe containing around $2,000 was stolen from Tesora along with around $900 in cash from the restaurant’s cash registers. Laboda was seen leaving the restaurant in a gold-colored vehicle. Burnett County Deputies spotted a vehicle matching the description and engaged in pursuit of the vehicle. Although contact was lost with the vehicle, it was located parked on property Highway 35 south of County D. Laboda was ultimately located later at a residence in the Village of Siren, WI, and taken into custody.

Charges of Class F Felony Burglary of a Building or Dwelling; Class I Felony Attempting to Flee or Elude an Officer; and Misdemeanor Criminal Damage to Property were filed against Laboda.

In a separate case filed against Laboda in 2019 he was charged with Class H Theft-Movable Property-Special Facts.



A hearing was held in February 2020 regarding Laboda’s criminal cases and he entered pleas of Guilty to the charges of Class F Felony Burglary of a Building or Dwelling; Class I Felony Attempting to Flee or Elude an Officer and Class H Theft-Movable Property-Special Facts. The remaining charges against Laboda were dismissed but read in.

Laboda appeared most recently on July 2, 2020 for a sentencing hearing and according to online circuit court records the Court ordered a 5 year sentence on his charge of Class F Felony Burglary of a Building or Dwelling; 2 years initial confinement followed by 3 years of extended supervision. On the charge of Class I Felony Attempting to Flee or Elude an Officer, the Court ordered 1 year of confinement to be served concurrently with his other sentence. Regarding the charges filed against Laboda in the separate case, the Court ordered a 6 year sentence; 3 years initial confinement, followed by 3 years of extended supervision to be served concurrently with his first sentence. The Court granted Laboda credit for time already served in custody.

Conditions of Extended Supervision will require Laboda to undergo an Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment and follow through with recommendations. Laboda will also undergo regular drug testing and he will be required to maintain absolute sobriety. The Court also ordered Laboda to undergo cognitive thinking and breaking barriers programming. Laboda will pay restitution of nearly $20,000 and $518 in court costs per count he was convicted of.

In addition, the Court ordered that Laboda is to have no contact with Burnett County except for Court or sentence purposes and he is also prohibited from having any contact with any victims in this case.
