In a odd/cruel exchange of words on our Facebook page we had a discussion that caused us to look into this matter just a little closer than we might have if it had simply been a theft arrest.
That cause has lead to this writing that took place late last week in Wayne County Circuit Court.
Now Mrs Sarah Leggero stated "she works at a job 12 plus hours a day" (at Rest Haven Nursing Home) information we was able to ascertain through means of common knowledge.
She ran her mouth about how her husband wasn't guilty of destroying/damaging Christmas Light Displays out at Leo French Park back in Dec., of 2011.
Unbeknownst to her we were present at the very hearings in which her now husband Ronald Leggero received a sentence of Withheld Judgement provided he paid restitution and followed the rules of his probationary period. A term that he did not follow and was subsequently recharged. He then made good on the original promises and the charges again were essentially dropped. That does not say that Ronald was innocent but it does say he isn't criminally convicted.
In the case that is a little more current and as of late last week involves Sarah Leggero and Shanelle L. Tyler.
Tyler and Mrs. Leggero were caught in the process of shoplifting from the local Fairfield Wal Mart Store and were subsequently arrested and charged with retail theft.
Mrs Tyler received 6 months of Court Supervision and fines totalling $232.00 in which her $150.00 in bond was applied leaving her a balance of $82.00 to pay before the review hearing set on July 8, 2014 @ 9am. If Tyler complies, this will come off of her record in a matter of Withheld Judgement.
Mrs Leggero was under similar circumstance as she was ordered to pay fines of $682.00 minus her bond of $150.00 leaving her a balance of $532.00 to pay. Along with her fines she was ordered to perform 40 hours of community service. Leggero will also have her Judgement Withheld if she complies with the rulings of Judge Kakac.
This again does not say they did not commit the act of retail theft, it says neither will stand convicted of it should they simply communicate and comply with the court.
We truly hope both party's will make better choices and not be a fine example of what the States Attorney (in general) fails to perform, when he makes these sort of plea deals.
We were also able to ascertain the information that Sarah Leggero gave up her position sometime around Valentines Day so she could spend more time at home. Only one little problem with that. How does one pay the bills without work? Oh yea thanks Obamacare!
2013CM215 & 2013CM216 were the case numbers in which we acquired this information.
In an interesting string of events that led to the firing of one Tiffany Marsh a few months back, we can now report that charges have been filed.
The reports coming to us back a few months ago were that somewhere to the tune of $35,000 or more was missing from the Davis Quality Convenience Store here in Fairfield.
Reports had even indicated this money was taken over a length of time from the business and that one person was reported to have been seen taking the money.
They questioned this person and she allegedly confessed to the crime.
Now she sits in the Wayne County Jail (unless someone bailed her out) under $1500 cash bond, after a Wayne County Grand Jury indicted her late last week.
We do not know what the amounts of the theft were officially charged as but we are aware of what she was initially accused of and allegedly admitted to.
Regardless of the amounts it is a shame that anyone would steal from their own employer.
This isn't the first time it has occurred in Fairfield and it likely wont be the last. We had an incident back a few years ago in 2006 where one Pamela Welty was convicted of stealing in excess of $60,000 from her employer Buehlers Buy Low in Fairfield. When they filed bankruptcy they audited the place for five years prior and found the missing money in those five years. We have often wondered what might have been found should they ever go back further but no one ever did.
We also have to wonder just how far back it was traced on Marsh and just how much she really took as opposed to how much she was charged with as provable that she took. It's the same questions anyone will ask of themselves when they hear of such things.
Point is if you want to steal at least pick someone besides your employer to steal from. Most employers don't like a thief regardless but they certainly frown upon someone stealing from their own cash drawer.
We can only hope that David Williams will actually prosecute this case to its fullest and prove that he is a reasonable and desirable candidate for Wayne County Judge.
So far he has been lacking in that department and we aren't holding our breaths for any change in that opinion.
