Garrett woman charged with attempted murder enters plea agreement

OAKLAND — Maranda Ann White, 20, of Oakland pleaded guilty to first-degree assault on Thursday in Garrett County Circuit Court.

“This is an assault with the intent to cause serious physical injury, i.e. injury that creates a substantial risk of death or of causing permanent or protracted injury,” said State’s Attorney Lisa Thayer Welch in a news release.

Retired Judge Diane Leasure, who was presiding, ordered a presentence investigation report. White remains on bond pending the sentencing hearing, with conditions of bond including home confinement and electronic monitoring, according to the news release.

White was charged with attempted second-degree murder, second-degree assault, motor vehicle/unlawful taking, unlawful removal of property, reckless driving and reckless endangerment, according to the Maryland Judiciary website. Since White entered a plea, the other charges will be dismissed, according to Welch.

White was charged by investigators with the Garrett County Sheriff’s Office on March 25, 2012. After receiving numerous messages from White that day, her former boyfriend agreed to meet her in the Town Parking Lot in Oakland for a face-to-face conversation and to obtain various items of his property that White wanted to return.

During that meeting, words were exchanged and White attempted to assault him, leading to him running from the parking lot and White taking his vehicle to chase him. This continued from the Town Parking Lot, across the railroad tracks onto Second Street, where White crossed the road and sidewalk and traveled into a mini-park where she struck him, according to the news release. She then crashed into the side of the building that currently houses the Cornish Café.  The man suffered leg injuries requiring surgery, while White was examined and released from the hospital that day.

Sentencing is currently scheduled in December, with White facing up to 25 years incarceration.
