Augusta Woman Guilty Of Police Assault

Posted: Updated:

An Augusta County jury convicted 54-year-old Judy Desetti on a felony charge of assaulting an officer. Now she is facing jail time and could lose her nursing job.

Corporal Mike Roane from the Augusta County Sheriff's Office was at Desetti's home in Fishersville last July to arrest her son. Desetti testified that the deputy trapped her arm in a door, and she hit him once in self-defense.

Both sides in the case asked the judge for the minimum punishment of six months in jail.

Desetti will be sentenced at a later date.
