SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - A Sheboygan woman has had 9 years chopped off her prison sentence, after she successfully argued that her term was unfairly longer than four co-defendants.
34-year-old Renata Neuaone was given a new 13-year term by a Sheboygan County judge -- and she's now expected to be released by the end of this year.
Neuaone and the other four suspects were accused of kidnapping a woman in 2001 over a drug debt. The 20-year-old victim was beaten, drugged, and hung from a clothesline at a railroad tressel. That woman survived.
In her original court case, Neuaone struck a plea deal in which prosecutors promised to ask for 12 years in prison -- but the judge gave her 22 years instead.
She won't be totally free when she's let go, however. Neuaone must serve 18 years of extended supervision once she gets out.
