Spring Valley woman pleads guilty to assault and property damage charges in Mower County District Court

A Spring Valley woman who smashed into another woman’s car during a domestic incident in Grand Meadow in December of 2018 is pleading guilty to assault and property damage charges in Mower County District Court.

31-year old Angelica Maria Quintero was arrested after a disturbance in Grand Meadow on December 29, 2018.  Quintero is accused of going to the home of the father of her children and entering without permission. A woman at the home stated to authorities that she was afraid Quintero was going to attack her.

Court documents state that after Quintero was forced out of the home, she got into her SUV, rammed the front of the other woman’s car, then left the scene. The Mower County Sheriff’s Office reported that when Quintero was arrested, she said she went to the home to get money for her children.

She was charged with 1st degree burglary but entered guilty pleas Thursday to charges of 5th degree assault and 4th degree criminal damage to property. Quintero is scheduled to be sentenced in Mower County District Court on June 21.
