A former Shadyside cheering mom is sentenced Thursday for stealing thousands of dollars from the school's cheerleading organization.
WTOV9.COM reports Olivia Patterson pleaded guilty and was ordered to repay more than $6,900 to the Shadyside High School Cheerleaders organization. Patterson must also issue an in-person apology as part of her punishment.
Patterson appeared in court initially for a pretrial hearing on one felony count of theft. The prosecution later requested the felony be reduced to a first-degree misdemeanor theft, and that motion was sustained by Eastern Division Court Judge John Vavra.
