Kentucky Woman Accused Of Stealing $26,000 In Girl Scout Cookies

In Kentucky, Leah Ann Vick, 26, probably does not want her case to go to a jury.  She is accused of stealing $26,000 . . . . from the Girl Scouts.  Notably, the theft was in cookies and the Girl Scouts are not sure if she kept the cookies or sold them on the side.  Either way, the aggravating element of alleging stealing from the venerable charity is enough to guarantee more time on sentencing.

That would be 6000 Girl Scout cookie boxes. Vick personally signed for the cookies.  She is charged with felony theft and  could face up to 10 years in prison.

The status of the victim as a charity can be an aggravating circumstance in sentencing.  When you are talking about 6000 boxes, the defense will be difficult to established beyond some compulsive eating disorder.

  1. Is that sour look indigestion or frustration at being caught?

    She can’t believe she ate the whole thing.

  2. Their resale value is close to nil. People buy them to contribute to the Girl Scouts. Only an odd minority finds them palatable enough that they’d buy them in a commercial setting.

  3. I think if she sold them for her own profit then the commonwealth should make her liable for the sales tax.
    IRS should tax her as well.

  4. Thinking it’s time for the Girl Scouts to install Hillary’s game of ‘PAY to Play’.
    No pay, no cookies.
    Honor system no longer works.

  5. Surely the girl scouts have some culpability in this matter – the cookies were just too delicious.

    Have some mercy – where is the bicarbonate?

    • I think the sentencing guidelines should draw a distinction based on the type of cookies that were stolen. If they were thin mints, she deserves 30 years to life. If they were those yucky peanut butter things, she should only get probation.
