Fargo mom pleads guilty to assaulting husband with child's toy

FARGO – A Fargo mother accused of using their child’s toy to beat her husband, breaking it across his head while he held their baby, and then assaulting her mother, has pleaded guilty.

Chelsy Ann Graves, 26, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Cass County District Court to one misdemeanor count of Class A menacing and one misdemeanor count of Class B disorderly conduct.

Graves was accused last month of kicking her husband in the side, shoulder, back, neck and head, telling him he deserved to die and threatening to get his gun from the cabinet and shoot him.

She then allegedly assaulted her mother when he called her for help.

Graves was sentenced to 26 days in jail plus one year of unsupervised probation.

She’s also required to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation.
