Slieter faces opponent in Renville County
Assistant Renville County Attorney Glen Jacobsen has advised Minnesota Lawyer that he is running for judge in the Eighth Judicial District against incumbent Renville County Judge Randall Slieter. It’s nothing personal about the judge, Jacobsen says, but just a difference in philosophy. Jacobsen is running a “tough on crime” campaign, saying current law and procedures don’t address criminal behavior appropriately. Jacobsen says he believes in more than a slap on the wrist for criminals. Slieter, who could not be reached for comment, was appointed to the bench by Gov. Arne Carlson in 1994.
