SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – Desiree Clawson, accepted a plea deal after threatening to abduct a child over the summer.
Clawson pleaded guilty to burglary, obstruction of justice and synthetic identity deception charged, according to 24-Hour News 8’s news partners at the Shelbyville News.
On Nov. 19 she will be sentenced to four years without probation at the Indiana Department of Corrections.
In May, Robert Clawson and Desiree put the entire town on edge when police said they were following up on leads the two were on a moped and looking to abduct a child.
Employees at the Ryobi plant spotted the couple near the railroad tracks on Mausoleum Road east of Michigan Road, according to Ryobi Human Resources Manager John Chrzanowski. The workers called 911 and police found the pair hiding in the bushes in front of plant 2.
After the arrests police said there was no “concrete” evidence that the couple wanted to abduct a child.
“The confusion came in that they had talked about it, but there is no evidence that they came here with a goal to abduct a child from here. There were no attempted abductions or evidence that they even tried,” Shelbyville Police Lt. Mike Turner said at the time.
A probable cause affidavit revealed that between April 19 and May 2 the couple broke into a building and planned to commit a crime. The couple also used false documents to try and obtain a new identity.
