July 3, 2019
Birgin Lane Billy was sentenced to one year of probation on a reduced charge stemming from allegations she was driving at speeds up to 80 mph and crashed into a tree.
Billy pleaded guilty in state District Court in Havre May 6 to a misdemeanor charge of negligent endangerment, reduced from a felony charge of criminal endangerment, and a misdemeanor charge of failure to give notice of an accident.
District Judge Kaydee Snipes Ruiz imposed a one-year deferred imposition of sentence on the endangerment charge and fined Billy $200 on the failure to remain at the accident charge.
