A woman who was identified near the scene of a Bellevue burglary pleaded guilty to the crime Thursday.

Paige L. Richards Faste, 23, of 617 E. Center St., Bellevue, will be sentenced June 18. She was convicted Thursday of an amended charge of burglary, which was dropped from a third-degree felony to a fourth-degree as part of a plea deal.

On Sept. 30, the Bellevue Police Department responded to the victim's home, where the female resident reported the theft of a television and other electronic equipment.

"There were some witnesses to the burglary. ... The homeowner gave descriptions of who may have been involved," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said.

The witnesses and victim identified Richards Faste and her co-defendant, Christian N. Lewis, 22, of 318 Belle Ave., Kasper said. Police then interviewed each defendant.

The case was filed originally in Bellevue Municipal Court on Oct. 9. A Huron County grand jury indicted Lewis and Richards-Faste in mid-December.

Richards Faste, who is pregnant and due May 17, remains out on a personal recognizance bond. That means she signed a court document in which she promised to appear for future hearings without having to post any money.

Lewis earlier posted 10 percent of a $15,000 bond.

A little early, but I'd like to nominate her for Mother of the Year.

Great!
Just another young mom who expects the government to "rob" a fellow American of money for his own kids to pay and support her child.
So why wouldn't she feel entitled to just take also..

Personally, I think if you're convicted of a property or drug crime that's classified as a felony, you should have a payee if you're collecting assistance i.e. cash aid, stamps or SSI/SSDI.

SSDI ( Disability ) is not assistance ... You only get it, if you have a work history and have PAID into it.

Don't confuse it with SSI.
