June 14, 2013

WAYNESBURG – A Waynesburg woman who used her sister’s credit cards to purchase merchandise valued at $468.87 pleaded guilty Friday before Greene County Judge William Nalitz.

Robin Jean Villers, 28, of 163 W. Elm St., pleaded guilty to one count of access device fraud and was sentenced to three years of probation. Villers also was ordered to pay a $300 fine, perform 150 hours of community service and pay restitution to Capital One and Target.

Villers was arrested Jan. 10 after she used a Capital One credit card owned by her sister, Shannon Villers, with whom she resided, to purchase $312.87 worth of items over the Internet. She also used her sister’s Target card to purchase $156 in items from the store.

In another case before the court, Rachel Lynn Moskal, 23, of 236 Nemacolin Road, Carmichaels, was entered into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

Moskal was arrested following a traffic stop in Cumberland Township on Oct. 20. She had a blood-alcohol content of 0.216 percent.

Those accepted into the program must serve at least one year probation and pay all fines and costs. Those who successfully complete the program can petition the court to have their criminal records expunged.
