Girl, 17, sentenced in theft
Washington County Circuit Judge Kennedy Boone sentenced a West Virginia girl Monday to three years in prison for stealing from an older woman.
Amanda Kerns, 17, of Ranson, W.Va., pleaded guilty to forgery and felony theft that involved getting the homebound woman's checks out of her mail and forging and cashing them in Washington County, according to court records.
The sum of those checks was just under $4,000, court records said. Restitution includes $3,478 to Home Federal and $500 to First National Bank.
