For Rantoul Press

URBANA — A woman from Oakwood who admitted stealing another person’s credit card was sentenced Dec. 18 to two years of probation.

Allyson Lutz, 35, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft, admitting she stole an Armstrong woman’s credit card May 22. Other more serious counts charging her with identity theft for using the woman’s credit card number at three businesses were dismissed.

Also dismissed was a separate case of residential burglary alleging that Lutz entered a St. Joseph home Nov. 1 intending to steal prescription pain medication.  

She was also ordered to pay a $250 fine and get substance abuse and mental health evaluations.
