Minnesota man who tried pawning stolen $15,000 violin given prison sentence


A man who tried pawning a stolen 19th-Century violin at a Woodbury store was sentenced to prison this month in Washington County.

David Joseph Brose, 36, received a 26-month prison sentence Aug. 11 from Washington County District Court Judge Gregory Galler. Under Minnesota law, Brose must serve two-thirds of the sentence in prison and one-third on supervised release.

Brose was convicted in June after pleading guilty to one count of receiving stolen property, a felony.
