Accused Harrison employee admits to swiping shoes

One of the six former Harrison employees accused of stealing food and other items from the local pantry pleaded guilty today, admitting that she stole five pairs of women's shoes while she was an employee there.

Cherryl Toplyn was the only accused employee who accepted a plea deal offered by the Westchester district attorney. Under the deal, Toplyn had to plead guilty, will have to pay $1,000 plus court fees to the town, and must stay out of trouble for the next year as part of a conditional discharge.

The five other suspects were offered the same deal as Toplyn, but their attorneys declined to accept them, asking instead for a one-month adjournment so they could review the stipulations of the proposed deals.
