A Cherokee woman is expected to plead to lesser charges next week stemming from a two vehicle crash in Plymouth County back on September 9th of 2015.
Court documents state that 30 year old Melissa Ebert will enter an Alford Plea to two counts of serious injury by motor vehicle and one count of O-W-I second offense.
Under an Alford Plea the defendant does not admit guilt.
Ebert was originally charged with two counts each of attempted murder and willful injury, but those charges will be dropped in the plea agreement.
Court documents say Ebert threatened to kill herself and her passenger, Damian Johnson, before veering her car into the path of an on-coming car driven by Dustin Boll of Le Mars.
All three people were seriously injured in that accident.
Ebert’s plea hearing will take place next Monday, December 19th at 1:30pm in Plymouth County District Court.
