LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Geneseo resident admitted to a felony charge Tuesday morning for stealing over $200 in razor blades and red bull from Wegmans.
Christina Schultz, 41, pled guilty to felony Attempted Burglary in the Third Degree.
Schultz appeared in court on her own accord Tuesday, having been released from custody on bail. She answered Judge Robert Wiggins’ questions with ‘yes, sir’ or ‘no, sir’ and choked back tears when asked how she pleads, answering ‘guilty.’
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office arrested Schultz Nov. 2 when Wegmans employees reported her leaving the store with multiple items. She had been banned from the store due to previous incidents.
Wiggins noted that he has had prior dealings with Schultz in court before and that this is her first felony conviction, with her priors being misdemeanors.
The plan is for Schultz to go through drug treatment court as part of her sentence.
“Now Ms. Schultz, you said on multiple occasions that you don’t like being told what to do, you don’t like people bossing you around. That is a recipe for failure in treatment court,” said Wiggins. “Why the change?”
“Because it’s better,” said Schultz.
