Mason City woman sentenced for assault at Garner home, kicking a police officer

GARNER — It’s a week in jail and a suspended prison sentence for a Mason City woman charged with attacking three people in Garner earlier this summer.

32-year-old Amanda Seely was accused in a criminal complaint of entering a home in the 300 block of East 6th Street on July 13th, where she allegedly grabbed a woman around the neck and threw her to the side, and then stomped on another person who was lying on the couch. The person on the couch was taken by ambulance to the hospital for possible broken ribs.  While being arrested, she was accused of kicking a Garner police officer in the left thigh.

As part of a plea agreement, Seely agreed to plead guilty to willful injury causing serious injury as well as assault on persons in certain occupations. Prosecutors as part of the agreement recommended a five-year suspended prison sentence on the willful injury charge and seven days in jail with credit for time served on the assault charge.

During a sentencing hearing on Monday in Hancock County District Court, Judge Karen Salic agreed with that sentencing recommendation.
