A Columbia postmaster arrested in March on suspicion of attempting to steal clothing and sunglasses from a Columbia department store pleaded guilty Tuesday.
Joyce M. Herron, 55, of Mexico, Mo., entered a plea of guilty to misdemeanor stealing in city court. She was sentenced to two days in the Boone County Jail and was permitted a suspended imposition of sentence by Judge Robert Aulgur. To avoid the jail time, Herron must not be arrested for stealing for the next 18 months, pay all court costs and complete a stealing offenders program and 25 hours of community service. Also, she will not be allowed back in the Macy’s store where she was caught shoplifting.
Her annual salary was $90,064
