A Norwalk woman won't have an identity theft conviction on her record if she successfully completes substance abuse counseling.
Mollie R. Warner, 20, of 27 Woodlawn Ave., must pay up to $220 in restitution during her three years of intensive probation. Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway granted Warner intervention in lieu of conviction Tuesday, but also ruled her probation officer has the option of imposing a discretionary 14-day jail sentence while the defendant is on community control.
Warner's fifth-degree felony charge of identity theft is for a Nov. 29 incident involving a relative. If convicted, she faces six to 12 months behind bars.
She also is on two years of probation for an underage consumption conviction through Norwalk Municipal Court. Norwalk police investigated the Dec. 17 incident.
