ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — A former St. Joseph Girl Scout troop leader will serve 10 days in jail and be on three years of probation for stealing cookie money from her troop.
Twenty-three-year-old Stephanie Morris admitted in May that she stole $3,522 from her St. Joseph troop's bank account and cookie money. She was sentenced on Thursday.
Prosecutors recommended probation because Morris had no prior criminal history.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports (http://bit.ly/Qz1iME ) Morris has already paid $450 and will start a new job in July. Her attorney said Morris was in financial trouble when she took the money.
