You ever hear a story of someone getting drunk and going into the wrong house? If you haven’t, hear you go. A 38-year-old Minot woman, Brandy Semm, got hammered drunk and started making decisions that she’ll regret for a long time. Her legal fees and punishment are what you would expect for the most part. Except it goes full North Dakota and I love it. Now look into the camera and say “I’m white trash and I’m in trouble.”
The judge ordered her to the following typical punishments on her court date.
- 20 hours community service
- chemical dependency evaluations
- no contact with the victims
- pay $325 in court costs
In addition to all those lovely new developments she has one more punishment. She must write a letter of apology as the coup de grâce of her drunken night out. If that isn’t as North Dakota as it gets, I don’t know what is. Maybe I’m overreacting. I’ve never in my life heard of a judge ordering an adult to write an apology letter for getting drunk and acting a fool.
Recap of her night:
- She went into a house that she did not have any legal rights to and was promptly removed with the assistance of a hand cannon.
- She attempted to go into a second venue but was unable to gain access.
- She was so drunk and out of control the individuals at the second venue locked themselves into the bathroom.
- Likely had a headache from hell the following morning.
- Was ordered by a judge to write an apology for being drunk and stupid.
Never change, North Dakota.
