BEMIDJI - A 24-year-old Pennington woman will be sentenced for abusing a young girl.

Deanna Antonia Beaudreau on Wednesday entered an Alford plea before Beltrami County District Judge Shari Schluchter for felony third-degree assault, past pattern of child abuse.


An Alford plea has the legal effect of a guilty plea; essentially, Beaudreau did not admit guilt, but conceded prosecutors had enough evidence to convict her.

Sentencing was set for Dec. 17.
