Flenaugh, 29, was in the middle of a trial in which she was accused of waving a gun around in a Fairbanks bar. After being charged with the new crimes she decided to plead guilty to weapons misconduct in the 4th and 5th degree.

Judge McConhay sentenced her to 360 days in jail with 360 days suspended. She also plead guilty to charges in two other cases. She will serve no time for those convictions.

Flenaugh is currently in custody for the new charges. At her arraignment Wednesday she entered not guilty pleas and a judge set bail at $10,000. He also set conditions of release requiring her to be placed on house arrest if she posts bail.
