Correction: Warrant served to Rochester man in jail

(ABC 6 News) – UPDATE: A warrant for a Rochester man’s arrest was ordered and served in March — even though the man was in jail the entire time.

According to Minnesota court records in March, Aden Hassan Aden missed a court hearing, a warrant was put out for his arrest, and he was taken into custody at 3 p.m. on the 24th.

According to ADC staff, Aden Aden was also in custody at the jail, and had been since Feb. 17.

According to Sergeant Malinda Hanson with the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office, Aden was indeed in custody in March.

As he was already in custody, it is unclear why Aden missed his March hearing.

“Our detention center coordinates court appearances for all subjects in custody,” Hanson said. “I inquired with the Sergeant who manages that division about a possible reason Mr. Aden did not make his hearing on March 23rd but have not received a response from him.” 

County Attorney Mark Ostrem said he also did not know why Aden was not brought to his hearing in March and “(couldn’t) be 100 percent sure what happened here,” he “surmised” that the court served him the arrest warrant while in jail, without being re-arrested.

The document indicating that Aden’s warrant had been served stated that he had been “arrested” and listed a date and time.
