The sentencing hearing for Tally Rowan was delayed Tuesday until September.
Rowan, 33, was found guilty by a jury in March of battery of a peace officer, obstructing an officer, carrying a concealed weapon, operating while intoxicated and operating with prohibited alcohol content. The battery was the lone felony charge.
Pepin/Buffalo Circuit Court Judge James Duvall granted the delay after Rowan’s standby attorney Francis Rivard told Duvall he didn’t receive the file for the case until last week and that Rowan, who is now representing herself, is seeking a pre-sentence investigation (PSI). Rivard said a defense PSI couldn’t be done until then. It was announced during the hearing that the
court ordered PSI, done by the Department of Corrections, called for one year jail.
The only other issue left from the hearing was bond. Rowan was asking for it to be amended, but Duvall denied it, stating among other factors “that she would pose a risk to the public and has been uncooperative with the sentencing process.”
