LUDINGTON — A 30-year-old Scottville woman appeared in 51st Circuit Court this afternoon where she pleaded guilty to robbing a Scottville gas station in June. Jaralee Chaloux Sobers, of 412 Thornwhild Dr., Apt. 2, pleaded guilty to unarmed robbery and accepted an offer by the prosecutor to serve one year in the Mason County Jail and to pay restitution of $707.

Around 2 a.m. on June 17, Sobers walked from Thornwild Apartments to the Admiral Gas Station, at the corner of State St. and Reinberg Ave., and then demanded money from the clerk, telling him that she had people waiting outside who would harm him if he called police right away. Sobers said she was wearing a hoodie, sunglasses and gloves.

The clerk gave her $707 from the register and the safe. She then left and walked back to her apartment, where she lived with her 1-year-old son. She said she gave some of the money to a neighbor and she kept the rest.

Two days later, Sobers was arrested by Mason County Sheriff’s Office.

Sobers has a long list of misdemeanors, including a retail fraud second degree offense which she committed while on bond from the robbery offense.

Sobers was offered a choice to accept the agreement of 1 year in jail or serve the state guidelines of 15 months to 180 months in prison. She accepted the jail time.
