Lyle man sentenced to jail time, supervised probation on felony aiding/abetting assault charge in Mower County District Court

A Lyle man who was involved in the stabbing of two teenagers in Lyle in November of 2022 has been sentenced to jail time, supervised probation, and time in the sentence to service program in Mower County District Court.  

19-year old Carsen Brian Dolan was convicted and sentenced Thursday to nine days in jail, three years of supervised probation, and 40 hours in the sentence to service program after pleading guilty on January 16th to a felony charge of aiding/abetting 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon. A 21-month prison term was stayed for three years if Dolan complies with the 15 different conditions of his probation, and he was given credit for nine days already served.  The Mower County Sheriff’s Office reported that Dolan and a 14-year-old were taken into custody on November 16, 2022, after a 16-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl were stabbed during an altercation in the 500 block of 4th Street in Lyle.  

The 16-year-old victims were treated at the hospital and released, and Dolan originally pleaded not guilty on December 1st, 2022 to all charges against him, which also included a felony charge for aiding and/or abetting 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon, substantial bodily harm, and also a felony for 2nd degree riot, armed with a dangerous weapon.  Those two charges against Dolan in the case were dismissed with his guilty plea.  

The then-14-year-old arrested in the case has not been publicly identified.
