MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A woman who pleaded guilty to terroristic threats after pointing a gun at a Muslim couple has been sentenced to 45 days in jail.

Hennepin County Judge William Koch told 49-year-old Nancy Knoble, of Brooklyn Park, on Thursday that her actions affected an entire community.

Minnesota Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1OiFZKn ) she’ll be eligible for electronic monitoring after 15 days. The sentence also includes a three-year probation that requires her to participate in a cultural awareness program about Islam.

Knoble confronted the Maple Grove couple with a pellet gun as they sat in their car in Brooklyn Park to pick up their son at a friend’s home last May. The woman was wearing a Muslim headscarf.

Knoble apologized in court and broke down in tears after she left the courtroom.
