Marisol Rivera, 19, of Greenwich pleaded guilty to one county of petty larcency after stealing $500 in cash and $58 in merchandise from Modell's Sporting Goods on Boston Post Road last October.
Rivera spent eight days in jail after missing two court dates after she was arrested.
She'll be sentenced on September 24, and will likely recieve three years of probation. She'll be required to pay restitution to the store and submit a DNA sample to the state.
Also on Friday, Yapura Ramirez pleaded guilty to petty larceny after stealing several hundred dollars worth of clothing from the Kohl's on Boston Post Road in May. She was sentenced to a $400 fine, $205 state surcharge, and a one-year conditional discharge. She will also have to submit a DNA sample to the state's criminal database.
Unlike other states, which require felons to submit DNA, New York collects DNA samples from people convicted of certain misdemeanors. Lawmakers are pushing legislation that would lower that standard further, requiring DNA samples from every person convicted of a misdemeanor.
Charges Reduced in Assault and Harassment Cases
Francisco Medesma and Jose Luis Medesma, both of Port Chester, were facing second-degree assault charges after getting into a fight with a third man on Main Street on July 3.
Assistant District Attorney Cindy Adimari on Friday said her office was willing to reduce the charges to disorderly conduct, a less serious crime. The defendants' lawyers requested an adjournment to contemplate the deal, and the case was shelved until a hearing on July 23.
Arcadio Pineda was charged with second-degree harassment stemming from an incident in June in which he allegedly threatened a neighbor in his apartment building. Pineda has no rap sheet to speak of, so the district attorney's office offered him a plea deal and reduced the charge to disorderly conduct. Pineda pleaded guilty to the reduced charge on Friday.
