Kenneth woman sentenced for threats of violence


A Kenneth woman will pay a $500 fine for making threatening statements to a man in the presence of a Nobles County deputy during a June 2018 dispute.

In accordance to the plea agreement, Tamisha Winters, 22, received a stay of imposition on the threats of violence charge. The felony-level charge will be considered a misdemeanor conviction if she's compliant with the terms of supervised probation, which is not to exceed one year.

One other charge was dismissed as part of the plea deal.

Winters was arrested in June 2018 following a domestic assault and threatening a man's life, which was reportedly heard on speakerphone by deputies.

Winters reported in Nobles County District Court Tuesday that the couple has since reconciled and raising a nine-month old child.


Moore told her he's glad things are calm and stable at present, but the past shouldn't be ignored. That included Winters being charged and appearing in court on two separate occasions related to the relationship. Winters was sentenced for interfering with an emergency telephone call related to a January 2018 outburst at the Lismore Bar and Grill, which the couple previously operated.

"The thing that's different now is this child," Moore said. "Any kind of child involve din any kind of domestic incident is a concern to the court."

Winters was also ordered to attend a couple's counseling appointment with the victim.
