Female Floyd County Burglary Suspect Agrees to Plea Deal

A woman charged in a series of burglaries in Floyd County earlier this summer has agreed to a plea deal.

40-year-old Sarah Schilling of Charles City was accused of burglarizing the same residence in Rockford three times between June 9th and 15th. Stolen items include a gun safe, a .22-calibre revolver, and an $800 television. Schilling was initially charged with three counts of third-degree burglary and one count of second-degree criminal mischief, all Class D felonies.

Schilling recently filed a written plea agreeing to one count of third-degree burglary and a suspended sentence in exchange for dismissal of the remaining charges. According to court documents, a judge accepted the agreement, giving Schilling three to five years supervised probation, while also imposing a fine of just over $1,000, and ordered Schilling to make full restitution for the thefts.

Schilling also agreed to testify against any other defendants associated with burglaries, which includes 38-year-old Ryan Allen of Mason City. He faces the same charges as Schilling, but has pleaded not guilty. Allen is scheduled for trial October 21st in Floyd County District Court.
