Emmi’s attorney Colin Bresee told CBS4 Tuesday afternoon that Emmi “believed it would be in her best interests and help her reintegrate into the community and her children’s lives” if she agreed to the deal.

Bresee continued, “She hopes she will get a suspended sentence,” but he expects prosecutors to request a prison sentence.

Emmi was known as an animal rights activist and hosted a Facebook program about animals. She founded the Animal Law Center and after her arrest told a reporter in Denver, “I was set up and I was set up repeatedly. All I can say is that I want the truth to come out. The whole thing is crazy. I don’t want to hurt anyone. “

The conviction in the case is scheduled for August 16.
