Man Sentenced For Helping In Beating Death

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man was sentenced to 180 days in a workhouse for his part in the beating death of a man in Golden Valley.

In addition to the time in the workhouse, Allen Ferguson, 24, will be on probation for 3 years.

According to police, in July 2010, Ferguson drove three juvenile males to a Home Depot store to buy shovels to bury the body of James Teto Grant, a man the teens had allegedly beaten to death during a gang initiation.

In February 2011, Ferguson accepted a plea deal and pleaded guilty to three felony counts of aiding an offender.

The three juveniles were also arrested. One of them, Emmanuel Garmodhen Myles, has already been sentenced to nearly 32 years in prison.
