Fort Dodge woman registers plea deal
A Fort Dodge woman already serving a prison sentence for setting fire to an Iowa mosque three years ago has now pleaded guilty to causing a fatal 2018 crash. The Messenger reports that 26-year-old Aisha Ismail pleaded guilty Tuesday to vehicular homicide by reckless driving for the July 2018 head-on crash on a Webster County road that killed a 20-year-old David Fliehe from Humboldt, Iowa.
Under a plea deal, Ismail’s sentence for the death would begin after she has completed another sentence of up to 10 years for second-degree arson, stemming from a June 2017 incident in which she started a fire at The Islamic Center, a Des Moines mosque.
