Woman sentenced to 3 years after judge ends probation

October 17, 1997

A Westminster woman was sentenced yesterday to three years in prison -- the balance of a five-year term she received last year on a theft-scheme conviction.

Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. terminated probation granted Shavon M. Moals, 22, of the 100 block of S. Center St. and allowed her credit for 501 days served.

Court records show the balance is three years and 136 days.

Judson K. Larrimore, an assistant public defender representing Moals, asked Beck to defer a decision until his client could receive treatment for her heroin addiction.

Prosecutor Jerry Joyce said Moals had made no attempt to pay the $1,234 restitution ordered by the court when she was sentenced Jan. 11, 1996. She also had failed to report regularly to her probation agent and had not begun a drug treatment program as ordered, Joyce said.

Court records show Moals was charged with 29 counts related to forging checks between March 13, 1995, and April 30, 1995. She pleaded guilty to one count, a theft scheme under $300.


Westminster: Firefighters from Reese assisted Westminster at 7: 46 a.m. Wednesday, responding to a furnace fire on Green Street. Units were out 21 minutes.
