District Court

By Staff | Feb 20, 2021

– Elaine Cori Hanson, Fargo, pleaded guilty to an A misdemeanor charge of menacing. The charge stemmed from a Dec. 28 criminal complaint alleging Hanson made a threat “to multiple people” at her residence that she would burn down the home of Judge Michael Hurly. The complaint said Hanson made the threat after Hurly sentenced her husband “to a term of incarceration at a hearing earlier on December 28, 2020.”

Hanson appeared in Northeast Judicial District Court at the Pierce County Courthouse Monday, Feb. 8.

Judge Anthony Benson ordered Hanson to have no contact with Hurly and stay farther than 100 yards away from Hurly and his family at all times. Hanson also received a deferred sentence of 360 days of probation for the charge.

Hanson also pleaded guilty to an A misdemeanor charge of false reports to law enforcement or other security officials. The criminal complaint was filed after a Nov. 3 incident in which Hanson falsely claimed her husband had assaulted her. Benson sentenced Hanson to a term of 360 days at Heart of America Correctional and Treatment Center, with 360 days suspended and 360 days of probation.

– Brooks Carmody Mcclintock, Rugby, pleaded guilty to an A misdemeanor charge of assault. Benson issued an order deferring the imposition of a sentence of 360 days confinement to HACTC. Benson ordered Mcclintock to pay $3,718.10 in total fees including restitution at $350 per month until paid in full by the end of his probation period. Benson also ordered Mcclintock to continue receiving mental health services.
