Lindsay Garner, Minot, sentenced to time served, probation, domestic violence offenders treatment for resisting arrest

Court records show that the state has dismissed a Class C felony aggravated assault charge against Lindsay Courtland Garner, 33, of Minot.

Garner had been accused of strangling her boyfriend and throwing items at him during a domestic violence altercation on June 29.

Garner entered an Alford plea on Thursday in district court in Minot to Class C felony resisting arrest. The Alford plea means she maintains her innocence but recognizes that she might be found guilty if the case went to trial.

Judge Todd Cresap sentenced Garner to 360 days in jail on the charge, all suspended but the six days she has already served, and two years of supervised probation. Garner was also ordered to participate in the 24/7 Sobriety Program, to complete a domestic violence offenders treatment program, and to pay $1,100 in court costs. If she successfully completes probation, the charge will be reduced to a Class A misdemeanor on her record.
