A Minot man turns a plea deal with the Ward County State’s Attorney office.
Marcus Lee who was originally charged with Conspiracy to Commit Murder Tuesday, January 14th pled guilty in court Friday morning, to a lesser charge. His original Conspiracy charge was a AA Felony with a maximum life in prison sentence. His new Accomplice charge is an A Felony.
