19-year-old fined $200 for doughnut theft
POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - January 26, 2012 (WPVI) -- A 19-year-old college student accused of swiping a doughnut in Wyoming is going to be paying a pretty penny for that pastry.
The Northwest Trail reports that Zach O'Dell has agreed to pay a $200 fine, $10 in court costs - and 79 cents to cover the cost of the doughnut.
O'Dell was accused of eating the treat in Blair's Market in Powell on Nov. 28 and leaving without paying for it. He was charged with shoplifting.
Attorney Sandra Kitchen says she has deferred the prosecution, and the charge will be dismissed in six months if O'Dell stays out of trouble.
The Trail reports that O'Dell declined to comment.
The Northwest College student has been studying criminal justice.
