Solarski gets 21 months for meth-selling charge

A Moorhead man who pleaded guilty to aiding an offender in a 2004 ax murder will be behind bars again, this time for selling methamphetamine.

Lee Alexander Solarski, 27, was sentenced Friday in Clay County District Court to serve one year and nine months on a felony meth-selling charge.

He’ll serve 14 months of the sentence in the state prison with seven months of supervised release to follow, said Heidi Davies, a chief assistant Clay County attorney.

Solarski pleaded guilty to the drug charge April 19. He also pleaded guilty to a drunken-driving charge on Friday and got a concurrent 30-day jail sentence, Davies said.

After pleading guilty to aiding an offender in the murder of David Hinojosa near Glyndon, Minn., in 2004, Solarski was sentenced to a year in jail.

Solarski also faces a pending charge in Cass County District Court of drunken driving. Police say he struck a pickup and a mailbox on May 31. He told police he was being bitten by a tarantula at the time.
