A Coarsegold woman was convicted Thursday of felony assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, and misdemeanor petty theft, the Madera County District Attorney’s Office said.
Rachel Nickole James, who turns 34 on July 29, committed the crimes during an incident at the Chevron gas station on Highway 41 and Road 417 Dec. 7 last year.
Both convictions, the assault and criminal threats, are strikes under California’s Three Strikes Law and will be added to James’s record.
Brooke Bergman, deputy district attorney stationed at the Oakhurst office, led prosecution.
“This is another example of our mountain office helping to serve and protect all people of Madera County,” District Attorney David Linn said in a release.
James will be sentenced on Sept. 21 in Dept. 29 of Madera Superior Court.
