SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County District Attorney says a woman was sentenced to almost a year in jail after she allegedly coughed on people in an Anderson grocery store.

The district attorney says Tammy Baldwin pleaded in five misdemeanor cases to charges including resisting/obstructing/delaying an officer, trespassing at multiple locations in Anderson, public intoxication and assault.

In the assault case, the district attorney says Baldwin was walking around Safeway in Anderson, coughing on people in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Witnesses described Baldwin as coming close to people in the market, including Safeway employees and EMTs, and purposefully coughing on them, causing them to fear for their safety," the attorney shared.

Baldwin was sentenced to 360 days in jail and was ordered to have no contact with multiple businesses in Anderson where she had originally been called on for disturbances.

In 2020 alone, Anderson Police say they have been called out to over 40 calls for service that Baldwin created.
