Treva Jackson, 36, was originally charged with four counts of Class C felony battery by means of a deadly weapon, for which she could have received a maximum sentence of 32 years.
Under the terms of a plea agreement, two of the charges were reduced to Class D felony criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. In exchange for Jackson pleading guilty to those charges, the third and fourth counts will be dismissed.
The charges against Jackson stem from an incident that occurred at Old Topper Tavern in Greencastle on Sept. 19, 2009. Court documents said Jackson got into a verbal argument with another woman at the bar, and the scuffle escalated into a physical fight.
Jackson is alleged to have pulled a knife on the woman, which resulted in injuries to the woman as well as three men who attempted to break up the fight.
Jackson's bond was initially set at $20,000 cash only, but was reduced in October to $20,000 with 10 percent authorized. That amount was posted on Oct. 15, and Jackson was required, as a condition of her bond, to be on electronic home monitoring through Putnam County Community Corrections.
Jackson's lawyer, James Holder Jr. of Bainbridge, filed a motion to have his client released from home monitoring. That motion was denied by Judge Matthew Headley.
Jackson was terminated from Community Corrections in November. Court documents said she had violated the terms of her bond by not paying fees, drinking alcohol and possessing weapons.
Jackson was slated to go to trial on Jan. 19. Before that, she was set for trial several times.
In July, Jackson's attorney filed paperwork indicating that Jackson wanted to enter a change of plea. A month later, Jackson changed her mind and requested that another trial date be set.
Although Headley has taken the plea agreement under advisement, he is under no obligation to accept it. He did allow Jackson to be released from jail, but ordered her to report daily to the Putnam County Adult Probation Department.
