Celestine Rose Plante was sentenced to time served in a plea agreement that dismissed a felony assault with a weapon.
Plante was charged with the felony and a misdemeanor partner or family member assault charge after a person said Feb. 8 that the person woke to find Plante holding a small knife to their throat making threats. The two were struggling when officers arrived, with the knife laying not far away.
Under a plea agreement, Plante pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge July 6 and state District Court Judge Kaydee Snipes Ruiz sentenced her to 365 days in jail, 352 suspended and 13 credited for time served. She ordered Plante to pay a $1,000 fine, suspended upon proof of completing a chemical dependency evaluation and treatment, and ordered her to pay $75 in fees and surcharges.
