Local briefs from Friday's newspaper.
Guilty plea in drive-thru case
The former manager of the Marysville Burger King will be sentenced April 30 for selling methamphetamine from the restaurant and from her home.
Michelle Renee Filby pleaded guilty Wednesday in Yuba County Superior Court to one count of possessing of a controlled substance for sale as part of a plea agreement with the District Attorney's Office.
The sentence to be imposed by Judge James Curry could range from probation to two or three years in prison, said Deputy District Attorney Larry Sager.
A charge of conspiring to commit petty theft from Mervyn's department store in Marysville was dropped but can be considered by Curry in deciding the sentence, said Sager.
The Yuba-Sutter Narcotic Enforcement Team arrested Filby Jan. 18 at the restaurant. After drug buyers ordered food at the drive-through window, Filby would bring the food and drugs outside to their cars.
Man assaulted verbally, physically
A Sutter resident was verbally assaulted while walking down the street, then was followed home by the same man and physically assaulted inside his house, according to a Sutter County Sheriff's Department report.
The victim, 31-year-old Hector Aguayo, was walking near Brittan Elementary School when the assailant, who is believed to be a relative of a Sutter resident, asked, “Are you a Norteno?” The assailant then “flipped off” Aguayo while holding up a beer, said Undersheriff J. Paul Parker.
When Aguayo responded that he was not a gang member, the assailant followed him into his home in the 2100 block of Palm Street and attacked him. Aguayo suffered a minor injury to his left hand, possibly from a knife, said Parker.
The assailant fled in a truck, which was found in Yuba City.
