Woman points gun at police, avoids jail
Placeholder Image
A woman who held a gun on deputies last year will escape with no record of the crime as she has been afforded a pre-trial diversion on felony assault and reckless endangerment charges.The woman, Wanda Gail Campbell, 55, was granted a two-year pre-trial diversion by the special prosecutor’s office after she applied for the legal option that will erase the record of her arrest forever, provided she gets into no trouble with the law during her diversionary time. A pre-trial diversion differs from a judicial diversion in that Campbell did not have to enter a guilty plea. As part of the diversion, she surrendered a 380 handgun to the sheriff’s department.Campbell was arrested after lawmen responded to her home on Grove Road near Viola.
