FARMINGTON — A Jay woman entered into a one-year delayed sentencing agreement Monday in connection to stealing nearly $5,000 from C.N. Brown in Farmington.

Lisa Parent, 49, pleaded guilty to two counts of felony theft in December in Franklin County Superior Court.

Sentencing was delayed to provide time for Parent to pay the nearly $5,000 back.

Deputy District Attorney James Andrews told the court Monday that Parent had paid restitution in full.

At a December hearing, Andrews described Parent as a manager at the store who was the only one who had the combination to the safe.

A district manager for the store called the Farmington Police Department after money was discovered missing and an investigatinon found that only a partial deposit was made on Feb. 2 and no deposit was made on Feb. 9.

If Parent complies with the conditions in the deferred sentencing agreement, she will be able to withdraw her pleas to the felony charges and plead to misdemeanors instead, Andrews said. If she fails to meet the conditions she faces up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
