In 2007, he was convicted of felony second-degree assault and sentenced to three years in prison.
In October 2011, Fair and another man were charged with kidnapping and raping a woman in Brooklyn Center. The case was proved with DNA samples, according to court documents.
Fair pleaded guilty to kidnapping, but the criminal sexual conduct charge was dropped. The Hennepin County attorney’s office declined to comment on why it was dropped.
Before sentencing, a Hennepin County judge sent the case to Anoka County, where Fair had a probation violation. If he didn’t receive prison time for the probation violation, he was supposed to return for sentencing in Hennepin County.
The plea agreement that then emerged was a five-year sentence, but the Hennepin County judge said Fair would receive a 6½-year sentence if he failed to appear for his July 30 hearing.
He did not show up. Less than a month later, he was shot and killed.
