Orange City woman sentenced to jail for stabbing


ORANGE CITY, Iowa -- An Orange City woman was sentenced to three days in jail for stabbing a man during an altercation.

Ochoa, Susana


Susana Ochoa, 38, pleaded guilty Thursday in Sioux County District Court to disorderly conduct -- fighting, a simple misdemeanor. As part of a plea agreement, the charge was amended from felony willful injury resulting in serious injury.

District Judge Jeffrey Poulson on Friday sentenced Ochoa to three days jail and gave her credit for time already served. Ochoa also was fined $100. An order of no contact with the victim was extended for five years.
