ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A White Bear Lake woman dubbed the "neighbor from hell" because of alleged harassment has reached a plea deal in her stalking case.

Lori Christensen, 50, of White Bear Lake, reached a plea agreement on Monday, avoiding a trial.

She pleaded guilty to violating a restraining order, according to court officials. In exchange, Christensen had two charges of aggravated stalking dropped.

Christensen became a subject of national notoriety for seeming to target her across-the-street neighbors, Kim and Gary Hoffman. Kim Hoffman is a recovering alcoholic and Christensen, in home video shot by the Hoffman's, could be seen pretending to drink and having a giant sign reading "I saw Mommy kissing a breathalyzer."

The plea deal calls for 10 years probation. Christensen also must not have contact with the Hoffman family or the neighborhood.

Christensen faced up to five years in prison on the three charges. Under the deal, she would avoid prison time.

Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 11 at 1:30 p.m.
