CRANDON, WI (WTAQ) - A former state probation officer is paying almost $600 in fines and court costs, for stealing lobsters from a grocery store in Crandon where her grandson used to work.
55-year-old Karen Boodry pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in Forest County, and a theft charge was dropped in a plea deal.
Authorities said Boodry stole a pair of lobsters from Schaefer's Food Mart in Crandon last year, while her grandson Donald Kilbury looked on. She told officers at the time she did not remember what happened, because she had been drinking.
Charges were dropped against Kilbury. State officials said Boodry retired from her corrections' post in late January.
