Rock Rapids, Iowa — An Inwood woman who was arrested on a felony warrant for criminal mischief after being accused of “slinging sugar” has accepted a plea bargain and has been sentenced.
According to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, their deputies arrested 46-year-old Treva Donaldson of Inwood on March 1st, 2018 on a warrant for criminal mischief 2nd degree, a class D felony.
They told us that the warrant stemmed from an incident in February in which Donaldson is alleged to have entered a rural Inwood residence and caused damage exceeding $1,000.
Court records indicate that the detective investigating the case says that on February 10th, Donaldson is accused of entering a home that didn’t belong to her, taking powdered sugar from the cupboard, and slinging it throughout the house, “causing a very big mess.”
If she had been convicted of the felony offense, she could have faced five years in prison and a fine of between $750 and $7500.
But, Donaldson accepted a plea agreement that lowered the third-degree criminal mischief to fifth-degree criminal mischief, which is a misdemeanor offense. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with all 30 days suspended and a $65 fine.
