Dingledy’s attorney, Anna Goykhman, says Dingledy apologizes to the officer, to the court and to her community.
King County prosecutors are recommending Dingledy spend a day in jail and pay a $350 fine plus court costs. The proposed sentence would suspend about a year behind bars, and more than $4,600 in fines that could be imposed if she reoffends.
Sentencing is set for Nov. 1.
