MERCER, Pa. -- A Mercer County Common Pleas Court judge sentenced a Greenville woman to three years' probation for burglary and receiving stolen property.
Denise Grisetti, 22, of Clinton Sreet had pleaded guilty to burglary and receiving stolen property. She admitted burglarizing a Greenville home and possessing a stolen rifle and shotgun in October 2000. The stolen items were later pawned in Youngstown. Grisetti said she committed the crimes to support a drug habit.
Judge Francis Fornelli sentenced her Friday. The judge also ordered her to pay restitution to the victims, including $6,448 to the Erie Insurance Co., and imposed several other terms including a requirement she undergo counseling and regular drug testing, and continue drug treatment. She is not allowed to associate with any co-defendants and is forbidden to go to Youngstown or to be in certain neighborhoods in Sharon and Farrell. She must also either continue her education or get a job.
