Woman Sentenced to Jail for Threatening Muslim Couple
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A woman who pleaded guilty to terroristic threats after pointing a gun at a Muslim couple has been sentenced to 45 days in jail.
Hennepin County Judge William Koch told 49-year-old Nancy Knoble, of Brooklyn Park, on Thursday that her actions affected an entire community.
Reports say she'll be eligible for electronic monitoring after 15 days. The sentence also includes a three-year probation that requires her to participate in a cultural awareness program about Islam.
Knoble confronted the Maple Grove couple with a pellet gun as they sat in their car in Brooklyn Park to pick up their son at a friend's home last May. The woman was wearing a Muslim headscarf.
Knoble apologized in court and broke down in tears after she left the courtroom.
