Dist. 3 City Councilwoman Sylvia Morrow entered a plea of no contest to charges of attempted theft in City Court today, Tuesday, March 13. The original charges of theft were amended to attempted theft in the incident stemming from a transaction at the Natchitoches Wal-Mart Dec. 18, 2017, involving three bottles of perfume.
Judge Fred Geohagan issued a suspended sentence of 60 days in jail and unsupervised probation. He fined Morrow $481 and ordered her to make restitution of $78.13. She has until June 26 to remit the fines and fees.
Upon completion of her payment and compliance with Judge’s orders, Morrow’s record will be expunged.
The record will remain open for Assistant D.A. Cloyd Benjamin, who prosecuted the case for the City, to offer video evidence into the record.
