(Albert Lea, MN)  —  An Albert Lea bar owner is facing sentencing after being convicted of six COVID mandate violations.  A jury deliberated for only an hour before convicting 57-year-old Lisa Hanson after a three day trial.  Hanson refused to close her establishment last winter during a mandatory shutdown order related to the pandemic.  Hanson argued during her trial that Governor Tim Walz’ executive orders authorizing the shutdown were unconstitutional.
