Woman who pilfered perfume going to prison



Published: Fri, April 29, 2011 @ 10:12 a.m.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman convicted of pilfering perfume from a K-Mart store is headed to prison.

Lycoming County Judge Marc Lovecchio sentenced Cheryl Dowling to between 1 1/2 to 4 years in prison after she was convicted of retail theft, a felony, for the thefts.

Dowling, 42, apologized to the judge and said she stole the fragrances so she could sell them to buy food for her children and not her drug addiction.

But Lovecchio cited her history of 17 separate arrests and decided to send her to state prison instead of the county jail.

Besides the prison term, Dowling was sentenced to 2 years of probation and ordered to pay $271 in restitution.
