A 62-year-old Woodbine woman admitted to getting physical with a Belk loss prevention officer in May in exchange for a one-year jail term.

Margaret Knowles appeared in Knox Circuit Court Monday for what was scheduled to be her final pretrial hearing before the case went to trial on March 12. Commonwealth’s and defense attorneys informed the court that a plea agreement had been reached.

Knowles pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree robbery. A second charge of second-degree persistent felony offender was dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
