BOISE -- Former doctor, teacher and congressional candidate Cynthia Clinkingbeard will be sentenced in August for pulling a gun on three Staples store employees earlier this year.

Prosecutors say she threatened employees at the Staples store at Chinden Boulevard and Eagle Road during a March incident.

Her attorney says she was in a hypo-manic state at the time.

Clinkingbeard pleaded guilty Monday to one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors dropped two other assault counts, as well as a weapons enhancement.

Sentencing is set for August 6.
