VALE — An Ontario woman will be spending the next four years behind bars for a shooting that took place in Nyssa in October.
Jasmine Ceballos was sentenced to 48 months in prison in front of Malheur County Circuit Court Judge Erin Landis on Tuesday morning. She will have two years of post-prison supervision for her charges of unlawful use of a weapon and felon in possession of a firearm.
On Jan. 7, Ceballos pleaded guilty to her two charges as part of a plea deal, and had the felony counts of second degree attempted murder, first degree assault, second degree assault and third degree assault, and two misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering another person all dismissed.
Ceballos’ charges stemmed from a shooting that took place on Oct. 22 in Nyssa. According to records, Ceballos shot at two witnesses before turning to shoot Gabriella Garcia, of Nyssa, in the leg and then fleeing in a vehicle.
Witnesses stated that Ceballos and Garcia were in an altercation when Ceballos “produced a 9 mm handgun to avoid getting beat up,” and the firearm subsequently was discharged.
The incident was believed to stem from “an emotional response to the loss of a boyfriend” by Ceballos, Rau said.
The shooting victim was treated and released at a local hospital.
Ceballos was caught later that, day following a traffic stop on Highway 201 as she was headed from Weiser to Ontario.
At the time of the shooting, Ceballos was still on probation in relation to a shooting that took place in December of 2018 on Malheur Drive in Ontario.
On that day, Ceballos, along with Xavier Machuca and Branden Learned, was part of in a standoff with police that took place at Fairview Apartments on the night of Dec. 21, 2018.
In that case, Ceballos eventually pleaded guilty to a felony charge of hindering prosecution, with a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm being dismissed; she served 10 days in jail and was scheduled to be on probation until Jan. 30, 2021.
