A woman who admitted breaking into the Burleigh County Courthouse will spend a few more days in jail before entering a sober living home.
Cheyenne Whiteman, 31, on Monday pleaded guilty to felony counts of burglary and preventing arrest in the June 1 break-in at the courthouse. She told South Central District Judge Bruce Romanick she had been accepted into Hope Manor, a recovery and sober living facility, but at the time did not have documentation. She and attorney Bobbi Weiler on Thursday confirmed her acceptance into the facility, but scheduling conflicts with probation officers prevented her from being immediately released.
Romanick sentenced Whiteman to 60 days in jail with credit for 42 days served. She will be on probation, one of the conditions of which is that she stay at Hope Manor and abide by the facility’s rules. She must stay there until her release is approved by the probation officer and Hope Manor representatives. Romanick suspended the imposition of a three-year sentence during Whiteman’s two-year probation.
She will be turned over to a representative of Hope Manor on July 29.
