A South Heart woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to four criminal charges.
Jody Lynn Kuntz, 42, appeared in Stark County District Court before Judge Dann Greenwood on charges from 2018.
Kuntz pleaded guilty to criminal mischief, a Class C felony, and criminal trespass, a Class A misdemeanor.
According to the criminal complaint, Kuntz did "willfully damage tangible property of another" when she damaged oil wells in Dunn County owned by Bruin E&P Operating LLC.
An estimated $9,000 in restitution is owed, Dunn County State's Attorney Stephanie L. Davis said.
"It was their building she entered into and did damage in, and was not licensed or privileged to do so," Davis said.
On Oct. 26, the "heavily intoxicated female" was reported at the site "attempting to turn off the pressure relief valves," according to a Dunn County Sheriff's Office affidavit.
Three Affiliated Tribes Police took Kuntz into custody. TAT stated Kuntz "has been known to trespass onto this property, as well as other sites in previous incidents," the affidavit further notes.
Kuntz also pleaded guilty to two Class B misdemeanors: driving while license is suspended, and possession of a controlled substance - marijuana.
On Oct. 16, Kuntz was driving in Dunn County while her license was suspended and marijuana was found in her possession without a valid prescription, Davis explained.
In North Dakota, the maximum sentence for a Class C felony is five years incarceration and/or a $10,000 fine.
For a Class A misdemeanor, the maximum sentence is 360 days in jail.
For the felony charges, Kuntz received 366 days in jail, with all time suspended except for time served, and two years supervised probation. Kuntz was also ordered onto the 24-7 drug program.
For the misdemeanors, Kuntz received 30 days with all time suspended except for time served, and one year supervised probation.
Kuntz was ordered not to have contact with any Bruin E&P properties and sites, or with any parties who work for them or any or the company's subcontractors.
The sentences will be served concurrently.
