BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Buffalo woman now has 39 convictions on her record after pleading guilty to stealing from a Tops Market shopper in South Buffalo while free on bail for three other thefts.
Lavina Walker, 49, distracted a 76-year-old shopper on April 4 and stole an envelope from him that contained $800. She pleaded guilty to fourth degree grand larceny.
Despite these admissions, Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita says the court refused to revoke Walker’s bail, so she remains free.
Walker faces a maximum of 12 years in state prison when she is sentenced in September for stealing from the 76-year-old shopper.
