Mono Deputy District Attorney Kyle Graham reports that Peggy Henderson has been charged with one count of embezzlement from Bills Appliances.

Graham reports that Colby pleaded no contest to two charges of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury. As a result, Colby was sentenced to three years in state prison. Both charges will count as strikes, Graham explained, meaning that when Colby gets out of prison a third strike could lead to a prison term of 25 years to life.
