MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 24-year-old Red Lake woman pleaded guilty Thursday to biting another woman’s ear off and biting her nose.

Joelyn Rose Hart pleaded guilty to one count of maiming, after being indicted on June 8.

According to her plea agreement, Hart admitted she intended to torture, maim and disfigure the woman by biting off her ear and biting her nose on Jan. 1, 2009. The incident allegedly occurred during a New Year’s Day party on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

The other woman had to undergo five reconstructive surgeries to re-attach her ear.

Hart faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, if convicted. Her sentencing has not been scheduled.

    Wow. I’m part Native American and I don’t drink, nor does my family. That’s like saying all African-Americans are drug dealers. Or all Mexicans eat tacos everyday. Or all Asians work in a nail salon and eat rice all day. I really feel bad for your children that are going to grow up with your racism.
