MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Trevor Mbakwe has been sentenced for violating a harassment restraining order stemming from an incident in January.

Mbakwe was sentenced to one day in the Ramsey County Jail but received credit for time served. He will be on probation for a year and must take domestic abuse counseling. He is also not allowed to have contact with the victims and must remain law-abiding.

Mbakwe was arrested Jan. 10, after a woman told police that he posted a message on her Facebook page, which is a violation of her harassment restraining order against Mbakwe.

    Who the hell is Trevor Mbakwe ? Why is this front page news? Why is this supposed to be important? Don’t your writers know how to make things relevant by telling why we are supposed to care why some guy was arrested for violating a restraining order?

      He was one of the top basketball players in the Big Ten Conference and on the Pre Season Naismith list of the top 50 players in the country.

      May not mean much to you, but it is worthy of mention in the news.

    Restraining orders violate due process of the law and the 1st amendment.

    All this because someone didn’t delete an ex-boyfriend from her friends list?

      I hope it is not your daughter that could be in danger in a give situation!

      @See BS, you wouldn’t happen to have any citations as authority for this, would ya? As in existing case law, for example?

      Or did you just read this on some guy’s blog somewhere?

      1. See BS says:

        Article 1 section 2 & 7 of the Minnesota State Constitution.

        Pretty basic if you read it.

    AJ…. obviously your rock under which you reside does not cater to news updates. He is/was a key component to the U of M basketball program before his season-ending injury.So there is news interest.
    You can now go back into hibernation….

        I’m guessing you have absolutely no athletic ability whatsoever, and it burns you to no end when someone else does.
