25-year-old Amanda Craig went before Judge John Sampson in Sheridan County Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon. Craig was there on two separate charges. The first charge was for Unlawful Use of a Credit Card. Craig plead "guilty" to stealing a credit card from Evelyn Craig and using it to purchase just under $900-worth of merchandise from several Sheridan merchants between July 28 and July 31, 2009. Evelyn Craig is Amanda Craig's grandmother.
The second charge, on which Craig also plead "guilty," was for Possession of a Controlled Substance of prescription medication that she stole, and for which she was arrested Monday, March 15th. Upon arresting Craig for the second charge, officers learned of the warrant out for her arrest on the credit card theft.
Judge Sampson sentenced Craig to 60 days in the Sheridan County Detention Center on both counts, to run consecutively. She is also to pay restitution to US Bank for the amount of loss they covered on Evelyn Craig's card.
