DeShaun Guilmant, who died in a North Minneapolis shooting, had an extensive criminal record in exactly and precisely the manner of most (certainly not all) adult victims of homicidal violence in North Minneapolis.
An image search on Google turns up eight different mug shots for Guilmant, not counting the mug shot above. And when I say "eight," I mean eight different instances, not counting side views. He had a tendency to pose with lips pursed, sometimes actually looking like he had something in his mouth.
Guilmant had an underdeveloped Facebook page on which he...
...put the following photo on display.
"MY BUSTED PICTURE..FUCC DA LAW."
In regard to his criminal record, here's his rap sheet from MNCIS:
27-CR-09-20616 Guilmant, Deshaun Scott 07/19/1990 04/23/2009 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Crim/Traf Mandatory Closed Assault-2nd Degree-Dangerous Weapon Dangerous Weapons-Possess on School Property Terroristic Threats-Cause or Attempt Cause Terror
Convicted of terroristic threats, the other charges were dismissed. Got a year in prison with credit for 158 days.
27-CR-10-9217 0100041961 0100041961 GUILMANT, DESHAWN SCOTT 07/19/1990 03/02/2010 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Southdale Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction Give false Name/DOB/ID to Peace Officer Unlawful smoking
Convicted on the false name with the "unlawful smoking" charge dismissed. Got a 30 day suspended sentence and a year of probation. Died owing the courts $250 on this charge.
02-CR-10-4572 02041045464 GUILMANT, DESHAUN SCOTT 07/19/1990 06/10/2010 Anoka Crim/Traf Mandatory Closed DRIVING WITHOUT A VALID LICENSE OR VEHICLE CLASS/TYPE; MULTIPLE LICENSES PROHIBITED
Convicted and was sentenced to the two days he'd already served.
62SU-CR-10-4414 910123047 GUILMANT, DESHAUN SCOTT 07/19/1990 10/05/2010 Ramsey Criminal/Traffic/Petty Suburban Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction Theft-Take/Use/Transfer Movable Prop-No Consent
Pled guilty. Had a sentence hanging over him of 41 days, actually served and was credited for four days. Paid some fines and had a year of probation, but died owing $131.00.
62-CR-11-923 GUILMANT, DESHAUN SCOTT 07/19/1990 02/04/2011 Ramsey Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Bastian, Gary W. Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction Drugs - 5th Degree - Possess Schedule 1,2,3,4 - Not Small Amount Marijuana
This case reveals he used the following aliases:
GUILMANT, DESHAUN SCOTT Also Known As Guilmant, Dandre Devon Guilmant, Deandre Devon Also Known As Guilmant, Deshawn Scott
That "Dandre" alias connects with a "loiter with intent" conviction in 2009, for which he paid a small fine.
27-CR-11-37826 Guilmant, Deshaun Scott 07/19/1990 12/06/2011 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Cahill, Peter A. Crim/Traf Mandatory Closed Registration of Predatory Offender
How "Registration of Predatory Offender" is the same as a conviction is a little confusing to me, but the record shows a 16 month sentence with credit for 36 days. He was, according to media reports, a fugitive at the time of his death...out of prison but not reporting properly to his probation officer. This would be the second instance in 2013 of a wanted fugitive dying violently in North Minneapolis. The other one was Landon J. Peterson.
And by the way...
Guilmant died owing $128 on this charge.
Media reports called him a "resident" of St. Cloud. This was apparently in reference to his status as a prisoner. But all the convictions on MNCIS show him as, actually, a resident of Brooklyn Center.
