MENDOCINO Co., 12/22/18 — Antonia Bautista-Dalson, who had plead guilty to being an accomplice to Negie Fallis, in the crime of being a felon in possession of a firearm, has turned herself into Tribal Police, after failing to appear in court for sentencing.
(For full details our previous reporting on this case here)
Bautista-Dalson had been scheduled to appear court on Dec. 17, to be sentenced for a crime which she had already plead guilty to. When she did not show up, a search for her was instigated. According to the Round Valley Tribal Police, yesterday evening, Dec. 21, she contacted them and agreed to meet at the Covelo substation of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office, where she turned herself in.
Bautista-Dalson has been romantically involved with Negie Fallis, who in turn plead guilty to being a felon in possession of a fire arm and has been sentenced to prison time. The crime stems from a search that occurred during an investigation into the disappearance of Khadijah Britton. Fallis remains the prime suspect in her disappearance. He was also arrested at one point for allegedly beating Britton with a hammer, but was not convicted due to the fact that Britton could not testify against him, having already disappeared.
