MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Rolla woman has pleaded guilty to charges in a case in which authorities say she and two juveniles used a stolen car to ram a bar that they then burglarized.

Acting U.S. Attorney Lynn Jordheim says 21-year-old Courtney Charbonneau faces up to 20 years in prison and $1 million in fines when she is sentenced July 19.

Authorities say Charbonneau and the two juveniles in April 2009 broke into a residence in the Belcourt area and took money, a video game console and keys to a car that they later rammed into the walls of a bar. The group then took alcohol, money tills and lighting, and stole another car on the way out.

Charbonneau pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary and two counts of larceny.
