A Marietta woman who skipped her initial sentencing on a check theft charge has now skipped out on her jail sentence.
Rebecca M. Hall, 38, of 85 Lang Farm Road, failed to report as required to the Washington County Jail Friday, potentially resulting in a probation violation and prison time on her underlying charge.
Hall was sentenced Thursday to spend 12 consecutive weekends in the county jail after failing to appear for her scheduled sentencing the day before, according to her attorney Shawna Landaker.
Although Hall's no-show could have negated her agreed upon sentence, Washington County Common Pleas Court Judge Randall Burnworth sentenced Hall according to her agreed disposition.
She was sentenced to 30 days in jail-the equivalent of a dozen two-and-a-half day weekend stints-on a fifth-degree felony count of theft of a check for stealing checks from a friend in December and reportedly spending them in Williamstown.
Hall was required to report to the jail Friday evening for her sentence, but did not show up, according to a document provided by Burnworth.
Hall could face a probation violation and be sentenced to prison on the underlying check theft charge as a result, explained Washington County Prosecutor Jim Schneider. She could also face an unclassified misdemeanor charge of contempt of court, he said.
