Rochester Woman Cuts Plea Deal for Crazy Night in January
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester woman has entered into a plea agreement to charges connected to a series of incidents involving her ex-fiancé earlier this year.
36-year-old Erin Daniels was originally charged with several felonies, including second degree assault, but was allowed to enter a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving.
Following her arrest in January, police indicated Daniels was attending a party when she got into a fight with the girlfriend of her ex-fiance and left the social gathering. Police say she returned a few hours later and drove her car at a friend of her ex-fiance while he was standing outside the apartment building. She missed the man but struck the building. After that, police say Daniels drove to the residence of her ex-fiancé’s girlfriend and backed her vehicle into the bedroom area of the apartment twice and then drove away from the scene after causing considerable damage to the building.
After admitting to the misdemeanor charge in Olmsted County court on Friday, Daniels was sentenced to one year on probation. Whether she will be ordered to pay restitution has not been decided.
