BISMARCK, N.D. -

Former Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein has pleaded guilty to a criminal charge related to the DAPL protests. 

Stein pleaded guilty to criminal mischief.

A criminal trespass charge filed against her was dismissed Wednesday in Morton County.

Stein, who was running for President under the Green Party, was at the DAPL site in September of 2016.

Stein spray painted on a bulldozer: "I approve this message."

In court documents Stein said the state had enough to convict her of the crime.

As a part of a plea deal, her sentence was deferred for 6 months.

If she violates the terms of the deal she would face up to 30 days in jail and or a $1,500 fine.

    NOAA and the Climate Prediction Center issued their winter weather outlook for 2017-2018. 2nd year in a row La Nina will likely shape our weather and climate patterns December through February. Climate Prediction Center says there is a 55% to 65% that a growing La Nina in the equatorial pacific will be in place by the time winter officially starts. This outlook is good for Montana if you like cold and snowy winter seasons like last year, however, it may not be enough to wipe out...
