FREMONT, Neb. (AP) - A Fremont woman who authorities say helped supply booze that contributed to the death of her teenage brother has taken a plea deal.

The Fremont Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1IdEvmA ) that 19-year-old Yesenia “Izzy” Valdez pleaded no contest on Tuesday and was convicted of a misdemeanor: procuring alcohol for a minor. The charge was reduced from a felony and an unrelated shoplifting case was dismissed in exchange for Valdez’s plea. She faces up to a year in jail when she’s sentenced on Aug. 4.

Police say Valdez helped 21-year-old Dakota McDonald provide alcohol to Valdez’s 16-year-old brother, Jaime (HEYE’-may) Valdez. Jaime Valdez was found outside the morning of Nov. 16, when, according to the National Weather Service, Fremont’s temperature was 2 degrees, with a wind chill of minus 16.
