Mason City man accused of burglary pleads guilty to trespass as part of plea agreement

MASON CITY — A Mason City man facing 25 years in prison on a felony burglary charge has pleaded guilty to a simple misdemeanor as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

A criminal complaint stated 33-year-old Keith Ingersoll entered a residence in the 400 block of 6th Northwest in the early morning hours of Sunday September 25th, wearing a mask that appeared to be covered in blood and possessing a baseball bat with barbed wire wrapped around the barrel. Ingersoll is accused of allegedly swinging the bat multiple times at two people in the house.

Ingersoll was charged with first-degree burglary, a Class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison. As part of a plea agreement recently filed in Cerro Gordo County District Court, Ingersoll pleaded guilty to trespass, a simple misdemeanor.

The agreement between prosecutors and Ingersoll’s lawyer states a joint recommendation for sentencing be a $260 fine and the extension of a no-contact order.

A sentencing date was not listed in court records.
