Coleman Pleads Guilty To Assault Of Law Enforcement, DUI

Coleman Pleads Guilty To Assault Of Law Enforcement, DUI
Rachel Coleman

A judge has accepted a plea deal in the case of a woman accused of running over a South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper.

Friday afternoon, Rachel Coleman pleaded guilty to Aggravated Assault of a Law Enforcement Officer and felony DUI 4th with a cap of 42.5 years in prison. 

Trooper Andrew Steen tried to pull Coleman over in the early morning hours of October 17, 2012 but she led authorities on a pursuit through southern Sioux Falls for about 20 minutes. The pursuit ended in the parking lot of the shopping center near 57th Street and Western Avenue where Steen got out of his vehicle to try and stop Coleman.  Instead, she accelerated and ran him over.

In court on Friday, Coleman's attorney said she has no recollection of the events of that night.  Four hours after the incident, Coleman's blood alcohol level was .079, just under the legal limit for driving.  Judge Joseph Neiles says based on his experience, it's fair to say Coleman's blood alcohol level would have been much higher than that at the time of the crash. 

Coleman will likely be sentenced in March.
