LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman who had her children help her shoplift from a Walmart has been ordered to write them a letter explaining what she did and why it was wrong.

Police in Logan in southeastern Ohio say Hallie Thomas and her two daughters took merchandise from a Walmart last February and March.

The Logan Daily News reports the 36-year-old Thomas pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of petty theft and one count of child endangering.

Hocking County Municipal Court Judge Fred Moses ordered Thomas to write the letter and said he hoped she learned from her experience.

The judge also sentenced her to 10 days in jail, fined her and ordered her to stay away from Walmart.

Defense attorney Don Kline said Thomas accepted responsibility and was remorseful.
