A Mitchell woman will spend 58 days in jail for theft.
Ariann Taglioli, 20, received a suspended imposition of sentence for grand theft from Walmart. She will serve the 58 days in jail and will be on probation for two years.
“When I came out there, I was prepared to send you to the state penitentiary for 15 months,” said Judge Rodney Steele. “My rationale for that was that all conditions in the PSI indicate you are a substantial probation risk. But I’ve changed my mind.”
Taglioli must pay $104 in court costs, pay prosecution and court-appointed attorney fees, cannot use or be around drugs or alcohol, or enter businesses that primarily sell alcohol. She must also enroll in treatment, counseling or aftercare, get a mental health evaluation, get and hold a job, and write a letter of apology to Walmart.
“You have an opportunity to not have a permanent record of conviction,” Steele said. “One reason I was going to send you to the penitentiary is because I felt that you have mental health issues and possible drug-related issues that you need to address. So this is an opportunity to address these things. If you don’t, then you’ll be sentenced to the penitentiary.”
