Woman is sentenced for Leavenworth courtroom theft

During a break in a friend’s trial earlier this year in Leavenworth County District Court, the woman swiped the defense lawyer’s wallet from a briefcase and went on a brief spending spree before the theft was discovered. In July, 51-year-old Theresa Quest pleaded no contest and was found guilty of theft and criminal use of a credit card. On Wednesday, a judge sentenced her to two days in jail as a condition of probation.
