You guys surely remember Edith Macias.
A now-graduated UC Riverside student who stole a peer’s Make America Great Again hat off his head last fall and refused to give it back has pled guilty to petty theft and will not face jail time as long as she completes a court-appointed program.
“The defendant pled guilty to one count of petty theft and was referred to our standard deferred entry of judgment (DEJ) program, which requires the completion of a class in exchange for a dismissal,” John Hall, a spokesman for the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, told The College Fix via email Monday.
“Prior to agreeing to the DEJ program, the defendant provided proof that she has already completed eight anger-management classes and wrote an apology letter to the victim and UCR. If the defendant does not complete the DEJ program as agreed upon, she would be sentenced to 10 days in county jail and three years of summary probation,” Hall said.
I hope she learned her lesson. I doubt it but only time will tell.
