One of two defendants in a series of local business burglaries could be spending over a year in prison.

During a pretrial hearing in Lyon County District Court Tuesday, Lesli Fontenot pled no contest to a single count of conspiracy to commit burglary after the Kari's Diamonds and Bridal robbery on May 16 and a single count of conspiracy to commit theft after the TP Jewelry and Pawn burglary on May 9. Fontenot was accused of burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary, felony theft and felony criminal damage. She was also charged with conspiracy to commit theft, attempted theft and criminal damage after what authorities say was a robbery attempt at Giefer's Car Wash, 101 South Commercial, on May 16.

Those additional charges have been dismissed. Fontenot now faces a maximum sentence of 15 months in prison.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 5 at 10 am inside Lyon County District Court. Fontenot's hearing comes less than a week after co-defendant Nicholas Hall pleaded no contest to burglary at Kari's Diamonds, theft at TP Jewelry and Pawn and criminal damage at Mr. G's Car Wash, 716 East 12th, on May 10.
