Wednesday, May 20th, 2009 at 5:05 am

A 20-year-old Lindstrom man faces up to four years behind bars for first degree burglary. Randy Travis Rising was found guilty Tuesday in Chisago County Court for an August 19th, 2008 incident in Wyoming Township.

According to the Chisago County Attorney Janet Reiter, Rising broke into the residence hoping to steal something, and was surprised by the return of the resident.  In his desire to leave the home, Rising assaulted the resident, who was not seriously hurt.  The victim later identified the 20-year-old in a photo lineup.

Reiter stated that Rising will be sentenced on July 22, 2009, and faces a 48 month prison sentence under the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines.
