Sherie Farstveet, 54, pleaded guilty Dec. 10 in Adams County Court to a single count of attempted official misconduct, court records show. [..] Adams County Judge Michael Andrew Cox ordered Farstveet to pay a $100 fine plus $199.50 in court costs and fees, records show. [..] Prosecutors dropped the original charge against her, first-degree official misconduct, in exchange for her guilty plea to the lesser count. The deal averted a trial scheduled for the same day.
