One person was sentenced recently on a felony charge in Southeast District Court, which was later deemed a misdemeanor.
Kaitlyn Marlis Kastet, 29, Jamestown, originally pleaded guilty to theft of property (possession), a Class C felony.
Kastet was accused of making unauthorized transfers of funds from one or more inactive accounts valued at over $1,000 but less than $10,000 from around Nov. 20, 2019, to Feb. 8, 2021.
Judge Troy LeFevre placed Kastet on 12 months supervised probation. Kastet received credit for one day served. She was ordered to pay a $400 criminal administration fee, $100 defense/facility administration fee, $25 victim-witness fee and $6,293 in restitution.
The charge was later deemed a misdemeanor because she was sentenced to less than 360 days, according to a Southeast District Court official.
A Class C felony is punishable by five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
