GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A Cando woman has been given probation and a stay in a re-entry center for a weapons charge.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Fargo announced Thursday that 30-year-old Diane Slaubaugh (SLAY'-baw) was given three years' probation, with three months at Lake Regional Recovery and Re-entry Center, for being a felon in possession of a firearm. She was also given a seven-month stay at the center for violating her parole.

Slaubaugh pleaded guilty in April. Her husband, Wilmer, pleaded guilty to the same charge and got three years' probation.

Authorities say guns were found in their home during a probation search last July.

Court documents show Diane Slaubaugh was convicted in 2007 for wire fraud. She and her husband were convicted of deceptive writings in 2005.
