Local woman sentenced in assault case

Nubia Olivares took a plea deal at her preliminary hearing Oct. 27 that cost her nearly $2,000 and one year suspended sentence.

Olivares was arrested in July for breaking into a couple’s home and assaulting them. Olivares appeared in court via webcam July 12 where she was given a $10,000 bond, but she remained in jail until her October hearing.

Olivares faced up to 20 years in jail if she was convicted in the assault and battery case but the district attorney met with the defense and Olivares pleaded guilty in exchange for reducing the felony count of assault and battery down to a misdemeanor breaking and entering charge.

Olivares was found mentally competent and Judge Brad Benson accepted her guilty plea as well as the notice of immigration consequences. Olivares said she understood the charges, waived her right to a trial and understood that this plea could affect her ability to become a legal citizen of the United States.

Based on the plea agreement, Benson sentenced Olivares to a one-year suspended sentence. If she violates any of the terms of her probation agreement, her plea deal will be revoked and a warrant will be issued for her arrest. She was also ordered to pay court costs in the amount of $1,921.75.

Olivares is currently being held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
