HOLTON, Mich. (AP) — A 46-year-old West Michigan woman has pleaded guilty in the theft of a $9,000 engagement ring from her granddaughter’s Head Start classroom.
MLive.com reports Friday that Amy Lynn Unger faces sentencing Sept. 10 on a charge of larceny from a building.
Unger of Holton, northwest of Grand Rapids, entered the plea Thursday. Court records show the charge may be dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor if probation is completed.
A Holton Elementary School teacher told police she left the diamond and silver ring and a college class ring on a counter while cleaning the classroom June 4 with another teacher.
While both teachers were out of the classroom, Unger and her granddaughter showed up early for a conference.
Hallway security video showed Unger entering the classroom.
