Eleanor Nelson will remain in custody until she is sen- tenced next month by Plumas County Superior Court Judge Ira R. Kaufman. Under the conditions of her plea, Nelson will not be re- quired to serve time in state prison. The offense--a felony-- could result in a seven-year prison sentence in some in- stances. But Nelson, partly because she agreed to a plea bargain soon after the offense and partly because she is not seen as a major threat, will be placed on probation and will serve at least six months and as much as one year in jail. Last month, an intoxicated Nelson fined a gun at a house after becoming irate that a neighbor's light was on.
