Red Wing Man Sentenced for Rape

A 21-year-old Red Wing man has been sentenced to a year in jail for repeatedly raping a 10-year-old girl over the course of several months.

According to the Post-Bulletin, Shane Micheal Toivola pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct in district court and was sentenced Friday, December 15th.

As part of the sentence, Toivola was given 30 years of supervised probation along with a suspended 14-year, four-month prison sentence. Two other counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and three felony counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct were dismissed.

According to the court records, a 10-year-old girl told law enforcement that Toivola had repeatedly raped her starting when she was around 4 or 6 years old in a Virginia, Minnesota, residence.

The abuse stopped when the child moved but began again in a Red Wing residence in October 2022, and ended in February  2023.
