Information from the Yolo County District Attorney’s office regarding an alleged vehicle assault is untrue according to attorney J. Toney.
Prosecutors said Elena Lund-Tessler had been convicted of trying to run over her boyfriend in 2011. In a news release sent from the District Attorney’s office, prosecutors said Lund-Tessler faced eight years in prison and the inability to ever have a California driver’s license again.
“None of that was accurate,” Lun-Tessler’s mother, Courtenay Tessler, said in a phone call to FOX40.
Judge Timothy Fall ruled early December that Lund-Tessler’s convictions were misdemeanors, and that she will serve three years of probation, according to attorney J. Toney.
Toney says that if Lund-Tessler completes her probation, the conviction will be set aside.
Toney added that the jury did not find Lund-Tessler guilty of the vehicular assault.
“The boyfriend testified that she did not try to hit him, but could have had she wanted to,” Toney wrote in a statement.
