A New Hampshire woman has pleaded guilty to a riot charge in connection with the beating death of a man outside a Rochester sports bar earlier this year.
Laurie Henner, of Farmington, pleaded guilty to the offense on Monday in Dover. She was sentenced to one year behind bars and two years of probation.
Henner was charged in April with assembling with two other people to commit violent conduct the night of James Unfonak's death.
Police had responded to Gary's Sports Bar on Jan. 31 on a report that a man had been assaulted. The 44-year-old Unfonak, of Rochester, was taken to Maine Medical Center, where he died of his injuries. Autopsy results show he died of blunt force head injuries.
