HILLSDALE, Mich. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a Michigan woman to nine months in jail for a home invasion in which the 20-year-old drug addict ended up with $2 in change.
In a deal, Karlissa Hawkins of Montgomery pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree home invasion. She was sentenced Monday in Hillsdale County Circuit Court.
The Hillsdale Daily News (http://bit.ly/1eMG7E9) says Hawkins apologized before sentencing. She was ordered to pay about $1,740 in fines and restitution.
Hawkins says she and another woman broke into an apartment. Her co-defendant says they couldn't find much money, and Hawkins used the $2 in change for gas.
County Assistant Prosecutor Rodney Hassinger says Hawkins has serious drug problems dating to age 14 and has been through rehabilitation twice.
