(Bismarck, ND) -- A Bismarck woman who was arrested on the grounds of the North Dakota Governor's Residence will spend three months in jail.

Court records show 32-year-old Dakota Bee was arrested in May after she went onto the grounds after a gate was opened to let a car in.

North Dakota Highway Patrol troopers say she told them she was there to give the governor paperwork related to a "personal matter."

Records show she will serve a separate sentence in an unrelated case at the same time.
