Twenty-three-year-old Mohamed Hassan Abdi waived his right to be tried before a jury and instead accepted a bench trial where a judge convicted him on the same charges earlier this week.

Abdi will be sentenced in February.

Twenty-five-year-old Sahal Abdi Hassan was sentenced to 15 years in prison for aiding and abetting 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The men kidnapped the woman in downtown St. Cloud in October 2020 and drove her to a park where she was raped.
