FARGO – Thirty-two-year-old Katina Tengesdal of Fargo is in jail but not because of criminal charges.

She is in jail because Cass County District Court Judge Doug Herman ordered her jailed on a contempt charge. The reason? Tengesdal refuses to allow her parents unsupervised visitation with her 7-year-old daughter.


“I feel if I sent her there unsupervised, that it would not be the best thing for her, that she would be in trouble, in danger,” Tengesdal said.
