CHARLESTON — A woman accused of stealing from a Walmart store three times in one week was sentenced to prison when she admitted to two of the thefts.
Judy A. Snyder, 60, for whom court records listed only a Charleston post office box for an address, pleaded guilty to retail theft charges.
Snyder was accused of stealing a bed comforter on Aug. 6, a toy on Aug. 8 and cosmetics on Aug. 11, all from a Walmart store; the store’s location wasn’t specified in court records.
She pleaded guilty to the charges in connection with the Aug. 6 and 8 thefts and was sentenced to prison for two years. The charge alleging the Aug. 11 theft was dismissed.
The charges were felony offenses because of Snyder’s criminal record. That also made her eligible for up to six years in prison, twice the normal maximum, though prison time wasn’t required.
As part of the sentence, Coles County Circuit Judge Brien O’Brien ordered Snyder to pay restitution and about $600 in
