LUDINGTON – A 35-year-old Sheridan Township woman was ordered to pay $3,139 in restitution to Walmart and serve 50 days up front of a one-year discretionary jail term in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Nov. 12, for a conviction of first-degree retail fraud.

Allison Marie Bunker, of 5342 E. Fountain Rd., pleaded guilty, Oct. 1.

In exchange for her plea, a second-degree retail fraud charge in 79th District Court was dismissed.

Over the course of several weeks, Bunker stole $3,139 in merchandise from Walmart by ‘under-ringing’ — scanning in cheaper items for more expensive items — in the self check-out lane, she testified before Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

Bunker is allowed to serve her jail time on the weekends, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.
