A|6 SIDNEY HERALD. SUNDAY. SEPTEMBER IS. 2019 NEWS SELFDEFENSE FROM PAGE1 Finn said recent events in the community motivated her to get a self-defense course to women in the area. The last course geared to— ward females she could recall was right after Sherry Arnold went missing almost eight years ago. “Those girls who were children when that happened are now young women,” Finn said. Finn has noticed a boost in sex- ual assault cases in Williston, Billings and locally. Most occur at the hands of someone the vic- tim knew. “We are dealing with some se- rious sexual assault cases right now,” Finn said. “It kills me to see a woman in a defeated posi- tion and feel like she’s a victim. Sometimes that’s why they don’t want to report. They don’t want to be seen as weak. Female vic— tims of sexual assault are at a higher risk for drug abuse. We know that Sidney and this area has a drug issue. I want to give these women resources to protect themselves.” The first round of classes will serve as a bit of a trial run. Due to the safety of the women in the course, more information is available by contacting Laura Finn directly or by visiting the event on Facebook at “Women’s Self Defense Course.” “Our purpose isn’t to make money,” Finn said. “We are very passionate about women defend- ing themselves. We care about our community and we want our women to be safe.” Cost is $75 per registrant, but no one will be turned away based on affordability. Women are en- couraged to bring their own water and Finn said she will also be providing water for attendees. \IAPING FROM PAGE 1 what is happening in other states and re- spond accordingly.

The sworn statement continues, “During my investigation, I discovered that the Defendant spoke with Sergeant Tyler Kam- merzell of the Sidney Police Department. Roselles told Kam- merzell that Roselles was driving the night of the crash when he started to slide. Roselles was unable to bring the vehicle back . under control.” The defendant also told Kammerzell a passenger was with him at a friends house earlier that night. She told the defendant not to drive due to his con- sumption of alcohol and was not with him during the time of the accident. City officials have been unable to com- ment on specifics in regard to the disci- plinary actions taken with Roselles as a city employee.

E-cigarette prod- ucts should never be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, or adults who do not currently use tobacco products.
