County judge sentences woman to 17 months’ probation


A New York woman accused of providing false identification to State College police pleaded guilty in place of a preliminary hearing Wednesday at the Centre County Courthouse.

Ahjani Nantwi, 24, was arrested on Oct. 31 and charged with felony aggravated assault, misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct and summary charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing and harassment. A third misdemeanor count of false identification was later added when police learned she had provided them with a fake name.

In exchange for a guilty plea, the first four charges — one felony, two misdemeanors and a summary disorderly conduct charge — were dropped, according to District Judge Kelley Gillette-Walker.

Nantwi was credited for the 24 days she has served at the Centre County Correctional Facility. Gillette-Walker sentenced her to 17 months’ probation for the false identification and summary criminal trespassing and harassment charges and $300 in fines plus court costs.
