Woman Pleads Guilty To Second Degree Burglary As Part Of Plea Deal In Dickinson Co. District Court

Thu 8-2-2018

(Spirit Lake)-- An Okoboji woman has pleaded guilty to second degree burglary in Dickinson County District Court as part of a plea deal in a case involving a forced break in of a residence in Wahpeton and taking a man from the residence against his will.

24-year-old Jordaen Duhn entered the plea Monday. She was sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to pay fines and court costs. Duhn also received a deferred judgment meaning the conviction could be removed from her record pending the successful completion of the sentence. 

Duhn originally was charged with first-degree robbery, second degree burglary, third degree kidnapping and assault while participating in a felony.

Duhn and 21-year-old Tanner Meysenberg were accused of forcibly entering a residence on February 20th, 2017 in Wahpeton. The two were also accused of removing a 19-year-old man from that home against his will and transported him to Milford. Authorities say the victim managed to climb out the window of the moving vehicle as it traveled on Highway 71 and ran to safety.

Meysenberg pleaded guilty back in September, 2017 to second-degree burglary and assault while participating in a felony as part of a plea deal in his case.
