Briana McGuire, Minot, originally charged with aggravated assault, given deferred sentence on disorderly conduct charge

Briana S. McGuire, 19, Minot, who had originally been charged with Class C felony aggravated assault and stood accused of beating up and choking another woman during a fight on Dec. 12, 2017, entered a guilty plea on Tuesday to a lesser charge of Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

Judge Stacy Louser gave McGuire a deferred imposition of sentence for six months, which means the charge will be dismissed if she fulfills all conditions.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, McGuire had gone to the Park View Trailer Park regarding a property dispute. The other woman agreed to talk to a third person about the property, but yelled a taunt at McGuire as she was getting in her car to leave. McGuire got out of the car and the two women got into a physical fight. According to the affidavit, the other woman had scratches, blush marks, bloodshot eyes, a bite mark on one of her arms, and hair that had been pulled out of her scalp. Louser also ordered McGuire to stay away from the victim and to pay $250 in court costs.
