Letter of the law
Convict told to write an apology
A Towanda woman who broke through a glass door to enter Florence’s Flying Eagle truck stop Jan. 28, then damaged a toilet paper holder and fire extinguisher before deputies found her hiding in the bathroom, got an unusual stipulation when she was sentenced June 5.
Paige L. Williams, 36, was found to have caused damage estimated at $1,075 between 5:08 and 5:15 a.m., when sheriff’s deputies investigated a burglar alarm.
Originally charged with felony criminal damage to property, she pleaded no contest April 3 to a reduced charge of misdemeanor criminal damage to property.
In sentencing her, Judge Susan Robson gave her a year’s probation but imposed a special condition that she write a letter of apology to Flying Eagle.
Robson also ordered her to either find and maintain employment within six months or to perform 10 hours of community service each month until she is employed.
