A 22-year-old Beatrice, Nebraska woman faces up to a year in jail for asking friends to stab her so she could get out of a probation appointment.

Jessalyn Stierwalt made an agreement with prosecutors and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of government operations.

She had been charged with felony conspiracy to commit assault.

Authorities say Stierwalt asked two friends to stab her in the abdomen and shoulder last July so she could avoid going to a probation appointment the following morning. She later told authorities she needed time to "sober up."

The two men did stab her. They are being prosecuted as well. Stierwalt is scheduled to be sentenced April 18th.
