A Duluth woman who repeatedly gave Superior police false names after being arrested for burglary will spend two years on probation and 60 days in jail.
Amanda Christine Cassidy, 25, pleaded guilty on Sept. 7 in Douglas County Circuit Court to one count felony burglary and two counts misdemeanor obstructing an officer.
Five additional counts of obstructing an officer and one count of misdemeanor theft were dismissed, but read in for sentencing. She was sentenced to two years of probation for the burglary charge. Under the conditions of her probation, Cassidy was ordered to undergo chemical dependency and psychological evaluations, submit to random urinalysis and pay restitution, court costs and a fine. Judge Kelly Thimm also imposed and stayed a nine-month jail sentence. If Cassidy does not follow the terms of her probation, she would serve that time. For the obstructing counts, the Duluth woman was sentenced to 60 days jail concurrent.
According to the criminal complaint:
Cassidy entered a man’s Superior apartment on Aug. 4 and asked for something to drink, then asked to use the bathroom. After she left, the man found that about $60 was missing from his wallet, which was in the bedroom the woman passed through to use the bathroom. When arrested, Cassidy identified herself by a number of different names and dates of birth. She had $64 in cash on her person. She admitted entering the building, which is secure senior citizen housing, by going in the door when someone was coming out.
