Hartford, Connecticut publication The Courant has provided an update on Emma‘s arrest yesterday for sixth degree larceny.
The Courant, via Emma’s lawyer Hubert Santos, reports that Emma appeared in court today and was sentenced to community service.
Her lawyer also says the theft was a mistake, stemming from an error in using Walmart’s self-checkout lane. Santos says she purchased $30 worth of items but forgot to pay for either an iPod or iPad case.
