- A Pennock woman was given an ultimatum Tuesday after consistently violating her probation: do community service work or choose between going to prison or committing yourself to a mental health program.
According to court documents, Judge Gerald Seibel gave Eileen Klinghagen, 57, the ultimatum after she, for the last several months, got 104 hours behind on her scheduled community service work.
She had been sentenced in August to do 15 hours of community each week for one year. However, because of several excuses, according to probation reports, she got behind.
Seibel told Klinghagen she must get at least 50 percent of her work done by March 1, or she will be sent to prison for 21 months, which was the length of the stayed sentence she received in August.
Seibel also gave Klinghagen the option of committing herself to an inpatient mental health program.
Her probation was both for a third-degree arson charge stemming from a 2003 incident and second-degree assault and fleeing police officer charges stemming from an incident in 2003, when she allegedly tried to hit a law enforcement officer with her car.
On Aug. 5, 2003, Klinghagen almost struck a Kandiyohi County Sheriff 's deputy with her vehicle as he attempted to serve her with an eviction notice. According to the criminal complaint, Klinghagen drove away from the deputy and down a dirt road which turned into a dead end. When the deputy caught up to her, he got out of his vehicle. Klinghagen then turned around at the end of the road and accelerated toward the deputy. She then led the deputy on a chase going back to her house. When arrested, Klinghagen allegedly assaulted other deputies, the complaint says.
On Oct. 30, 2003, she allegedly set a home she was renting on fire. She had been living in the home when it was slotted for demolition because of the expansion of the Willmar Airport. The person who owned the house was fine with the demolition, but Klinghagen didn't want to leave. After a conflict with the city about moving out, she agreed to move out on Oct. 30. However, when she was moving out, she allegedly set the house on fire.
