In exchange, Haymore asked the state to release him for 90 days to help his wife through chemotherapy.

After his 90-day release, Haymore agreed to return to Freeborn county for a “middle-of-the-box” sentencing, which will run concurrently with a 107 month executed sentence, which he negotiated with Olmsted County.

Nine other drug charges and one count each of driving while intoxicated and of fleeing police in a motor vehicle were dismissed.

Haymore was additionally sentenced to 90 days in Freeborn County Jail for driving after license revocation, with credit for 90 days already served.
