Proctor man gets 16 years for attempted murder


Proctor man gets 16 years for attempted murder

A man who fired 38 shots with an AR-15 at his girlfriend with children present on the 100 block of Fifth Street in Proctor on November 26, 2016, will spend more than 16 years in prison.

On Friday, Rusty Kallis, 41, was convicted of felony attempted premeditated first degree murder. He told the court he regretted his action from November of 2016.

He will spend the next 200 months in prison in St. Cloud, with credit for 441 days served. 

A month after the incident Kallis entered a last-minute guilty plea in court.  He  then reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to attempted premeditated first degree murder.  With the plea, Kallis avoided a trial and 10 felony charges, including second degree attempted intentional murder.

Kallis, during the incident, fired several rounds into the kitchen floor, a pickup truck in the driveway was riddled with 19 bullet holes and a house across the street was hit.

No victim impact statements were read in court, but prosecutor Rebekka Stumme said, "the impact on them is tremendous, and it is beyond fortunate that no one was injured or killed."

Kallis' attorney said Kallis knows he can never make up for the hurt he caused.

Judge Theresa Neo said that what Kallis went through in his past is horrible, but that does not excuse his behavior.  She said to the 41-year old, that he'll be eligible for release around the time he is 50. "You'll have plenty of time to live a different life."
