A former employee of a West Mansfield drive-thru pleaded guilty Friday to stealing a bank deposit in Logan County Common Pleas Court.
Lelitha Guisinger, 46, of Richwood, pleaded guilty to theft, a fifth-degree felony and was placed on the prosecutor’s pretrial diversion program.
She was charged in May after she stole a $1,000 deposit from Steward’s Drive-Thru at 116 S. Main St., West Mansfield. She admitted to the crime with deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office on May 15.
It was “impulse” that led her to take the money, according to reports from law enforcement.
If she completes the diversion program, she won’t have any criminal record.
Early release denied for defendant imprisoned for robbery
A defendant six months into a four-year prison term for second-degree burglary won’t be getting out of prison yet.
Tyrell Artis, 21, of Bellefontaine, was sentenced to prison in December for robbing a Heritage Drive apartment.
Common Pleas Court Judge Mark S. O’Connor said his intention is to send the defendant to the West Central Community Based Correctional Facility after prison, but he intended for the defendant to serve more than just six months in prison.
The defendant had not received any disciplinary actions since he’s been in prison, the judge said.
“I may deny this now and grant it later,” the judge concluded.
