A Des Moines woman was recently convicted on felony charges in Guthrie County.
Court documents show that 36-year-old Elizabeth Joan Williams pleaded guilty to two counts of using a juvenile to commit an indictable offense, a class C felony; and four counts of third degree burglary, an aggravated misdemeanor. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison for each of the felonies and two years in prison for each of the misdemeanors, which was suspended for Williams to serve three years probation for each of the felonies and two years for each of the misdemeanors, to be served concurrently.
Williams must pay over $5,500 in fines, surcharges, and restitution; though she was found to have no reasonable ability to pay for Category II expenses. As an additional term of her probation for this case and for a Polk County felony case, Williams must remain in custody until a bed opens up at the Women’s Fresh Start Facility and she attends until maximum benefits are achieved. All other counts were dismissed in this case for the August 18th incident.
