Woman pleads in attempted robbery

July 26, 2007|By ERIN JULIUS

A woman charged with several crimes in connection with a Jan. 13 home invasion in the 16000 block of Broadfording Road entered an Alford plea Wednesday morning in Washington County Circuit Court to attempted armed robbery.

Under an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit guilt but concedes that the state has enough evidence to gain a conviction.

Washington County Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III deferred sentencing for Whitney Ingram, 18, and ordered a presentence investigation.

Ingram will be sentenced Sept. 24, Boone said.

Paul Logan Tierney, 19, pleaded guilty Wednesday afternoon to conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection with the same incident.

Boone sentenced Tierney to five years in prison, with all but one year and one day suspended.
