Woman who stole families’ money avoids jail


An Amherst woman who stole money raised for National Guard families so she could feed her drug habit has avoided jail time.

On Monday, Shana King was sentenced to probation. She admitted to stealing more than $1,000 in funds that were raised for families last year at a fundraiser at the Connecticut Street Armory, where she volunteered.

“I sincerely apologize for what I’ve done. I feel horrible about it. And I will definitely pay back what I’ve took. I apologize to the National Guard for what I’ve done,” King said.

She will have to pay restitution.
