A mother of two who with her sport utility vehicle because the victim was romantically involved with the father of her children pleaded guilty today to assault with a deadly weapon and making a criminal threat.
Beverly Gligo, 36, faces between probation and four years, eight months in prison when she is sentenced Oct. 18, said defense attorney Anthony Solare.
Melissa Bone testified at a preliminary hearing last month that she was driving on El Nopal in Lakeside about 3:30 p.m. on June 6 when she noticed two women fighting in the street.
Raylien Paschke got off Gligo and walked away, and Gligo got into her vehicle and drove up a nearby driveway toward Paschke, who was then walking with a man, Bone testified.
Paschke was struck in a leg and knocked into a wire fence. The man with whom she was walking was not injured.
Paschke testified that she met the father of Gligo's children, Christopher Hartmann, in September 2011 and had no idea until Christmas that he was in a relationship with Gligo.
Paschke said she talked with Gligo on the telephone and communicated on Facebook, and Gligo challenged her to fight.
Paschke said she was checking the mail at the Lakeside home where she was living on June 6 when Gligo pulled up and confronted her.
Paschke said she restrained Gligo, socked her in the face, then pushed her away. As she walked away and up the driveway, Paschke said Gligo got in her car and slammed into her.
Paschke said she was knocked unconscious, then woke up and heard Gligo screaming that she was going to kill her. Gligo then tried to leave, but her vehicle became wedged between a tree and a fence post.
