Former Parole Officers Pleads in Lobster Theft

18 Jun News

A former parole agent in Northern Wisconsin has pleaded guilty to lesser charges after being accused of stealing lobsters.

Karen Boodry was arrested last December after security footage from a Crandon grocery store showed her putting two lobsters in her purse. She was charged with retail theft and disorderly conduct.

At a hearing last Friday, court records show she pleaded guilty to the disorderly conduct charge in exchange for a dismissal of the the theft charge. She’ll be ordered to pay restitution and costs totaling more than $500.

Boodry had waived a right to an attorney and had been dealing with the district attorney directly.

The 55 year old was working as a parole agent with the Department of Corrections at the time of the incident. She has since retired.
