A woman was arrested, charged and convicted of harassment after sending a greeting card to her neighbor, prosecutors in Minnesota said.
Now, the woman of Moorhead, has been sentenced to 90 days in jail with all but two days suspended.
65-year-old Sharon Lavonne Rousseau, was convicted by a Clay County jury of one count of harassment in the face of a restraining order.
The restraining order was issued in the Clay County District Court after a difficult long history of discord between the woman and her neighbor.
The woman’s attorney however, claimed that sending the card did not cause any damage to the neighboring family, and therefore should not be considered harassment.
A judge sentenced the woman to serve 90 days in jail. However, all but two days of the sentence was suspended. Rousseau was also sentenced to a year of supervised probation.
