COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) – A Nebraska woman won’t have to pay $835 for parking on the grass earlier this month at the Council Bluffs Sports Complex. Laura Sherman had vowed to fight the $750 fine and $85 court fee.

Sherman won’t have to fight the fine because she’s made a deal with the Pottawattamie County prosecutor. As part of the agreement, the judge will keep the fine in place

but Sherman doesn’t have to pay it. Sherman says that if she behaves until November, the fine will be cut to about $100.

She says, “I absolutely will not park on the grass again.”
