Woman pleads guilty to assault

CLINTON — A Clinton woman will serve jail time and probation for throwing items at her boyfriend.

Chyla J. Schank, 30, 67 25th Ave. North, pleaded guilty to a second offense of domestic abuse assault, with injury and was ordered to serve 90 days in the Clinton County jail, with 82 days suspended and credit for one day served. A $625 fine was suspended. She must complete 12 months probation and the Batterers Education Program.

According to court documents, Clinton police were dispatched at 4:05 a.m. Aug. 16 to 1439 13th Ave. South, for a report of a domestic assault. Officers spoke to the defendant’s boyfriend who said that Schank threw several items at him and hit him with a metal bookshelf. Officers noted bleeding from the victim’s head and left forearm, according to the affidavit.

Court documents continue that Schank left the residence before police arrived on scene and returned while they were there. She told officers that she had been lying in a field, hiding, because she did not want to go to jail, according to the affidavit. Her clothing had blood on them, but officers saw no bleeding injuries on her.

A no-contact order is in effect for 12 months.
