Anchor Point woman charged with attempted murder takes plea deal

Posted: June 29, 2011 - 7:41am

An Anchor Point woman originally charged with the attempted murder of her girlfriend pleaded guilty to assault in the third degree Tuesday as part of a plea agreement.

Laurie Kalberg shot at her girlfriend with a Taurus .357 revolver after an alcohol-fueled altercation on New Year’s Day 2011.

The agreement stipulates Kalberg, 46, plead guilty to third-degree assault in exchange for the dismissal of the other charges, including attempted murder and second-degree assault. She also pleaded guilty to violating probation from a previous felony conviction.

Due to Kalberg’s three prior felony convictions, the agreement demands she serve a flat five years in jail for the third-degree assault charge. The violation of probation also requires her to serve out the remainder of a previous sentence, which is about two-and-a-half years.

If the deal is accepted during Kalberg’s sentencing hearing on July 12, she will serve roughly seven-and-a-half years in jail.
