livingstondaily.com: Northfield Township woman sentenced to jail time in assault against police officers
A Northfield Township woman was sentenced to jail time, anger-management therapy and $3,000 in restitution after pleading no contest to driving toward a pair of police officers and striking one, the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus reported Sunday.
Rebecca Lee Ball, 26, was sentenced to five months in the Livingston County Jail and given 87 days credit for time already served. She had pleaded no contest to two counts of felonious assault stemming from the July 4 incident in Green Oak Township, in which police said she revved the engine of her car and drove toward two officers who responded to an assault report, striking one officer in the upper thigh.
Ball had been jailed for violating terms of her bond, which called for her to surrender her license and not drive, after she drove herself to a court hearing.
Ball will also serve two years of probation upon release, with the first year on electronic monitoring.
Her attorney, Mark Spickard, said Thursday that Ball has spent an additional 28 days in jail as a result of violating bond and said it was "a bit of a wake-up call" for her.
