By JULIE E. GREENE / Staff Writer
A Hagerstown woman pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft Monday in Washington County Circuit Court for stealing two Sony PlayStation games from Ames Department Store.
Jodi Marie Faith, 24, of North Mulberry Street, was given a 30-day suspended sentence in the Washington County Detention Center by Judge John H. McDowell.
McDowell said previous difficulties Faith had with substance abuse and an abusive relationship with the father of two of her children may have contributed to her actions.
He warned Faith that further problems would result in jail time.
McDowell also ordered Faith, to pay $265 in fine and court costs within 60 days and to complete mental health treatment. He gave her one year of unsupervised probation. She was also ordered not to trespass at Ames.
