Hey everyone,the other day when I was browsing the internet I came across this article about a woman going to trial for stealing a $2 pumpkin ,and when I came across the article about the woman going to trial for stealing a $2 pumpkin,I thought it was crazy,because the woman shouldn't be going to trial for that,but she should just get community service work or something but not trial,because the crime she committed was nothing severe to where she killed someone or robbed millions of dollars off of people ....no but it was just stealing a $2 pumpkin.
But anyways check out the article below about it,and let me know what you guy's think:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A 23-year-old college student from New Mexico is scheduled to go to trial for allegedly stealing a small pumpkin worth two dollars.
KOAT-TV (http://bit.ly/wXg7PI ) in Albuquerque, N.M., reports that Lauren Medina will go before a jury and Moriarity Magistrate Judge Steve Jones on Tuesday. She is accused of taking the pumpkin in October 2011 from McCall's Pumpkin Patch in Moriarty.
Her sister, Annette Atencio, says Medina spent $75 on food that day but forgot to pay for the pumpkin she picked up as she was leaving. Atencio says her sister offered to pay but was refused and then handcuffed.
Atencio says she's in disbelief that the theft charge against her sister was not dropped.
She says her sister could have pleaded guilty and be given probation, but refused.
