Charges dropped

Mar 21, 2013

Several charges against a woman, including one felony, were dismissed in district court last week.

Deneen Osen, 41, was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon and reckless driving March 18, 2012.

She was arrested after driving past a checkpoint that evening. Osen said she was driving a 1971 Ford truck which is sometimes difficult to stop quickly. She said she wasn't able to stop the truck until she was about 30 yards past the checkpoint.

Charges of injury to real property and larceny from Aug. 23, 2012 were also dismissed.
