WINDOM — A former Windom resident was sentenced to 180 days of local jail time in a May assault case in which, in the course of assaulting an adult family member, she injured a child under the age of four.
Cheyenne Narber, 24, now of Fairmont, was arrested May 18 after an errant blow left a mark on a child's forehead. She pleaded guilty to count I, felony third-degree assault, and a misdemeanor domestic assault charge was dismissed.
Since her arrest, Narber has made arrangements to receive treatment for alcohol abuse and domestic violence. At the sentencing hearing Tuesday, Fifth Judicial District Judge Christina Wietzema sentenced Narber to 18 months in prison, with a stay of execution, meaning she will be allowed to serve up to five years' supervised probation instead.
A condition of the stay is that she must serve 180 days of local jail time, with credit for 73 days already served. Narber was also ordered to pay a $500 fine, which she may work off through community service if desired.
