Domestic Violence Defendant Ready to Take Plea Deal, Attorney Says

A defense attorney in a domestic violence case said her client is ready to take the prosecution’s plea deal.

The defendant is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.

During the July 21 hearing, defense attorney Cheline Shroeder said she has to assign her client a new attorney because she will be unavailable for some time. Defense attorney John Crowler will be representing the defendant going forward.

Judge John Campbell scheduled another hearing for Aug. 27.
