GRAND RAPIDS (AP) - A Grand Rapids woman has been sentenced to serve a year of probation for posting a fake online ad offering sex with a woman with whom she argued outside a Meijer store.

Amy Burnett was sentenced Wednesday in Kent County Circuit Court. She pleaded no contest to unlawfully posting a message and using a computer to commit a crime.

A woman confronted Burnett on June 22 after finding a dog left unattended in Burnett’s vehicle.

Police say the 37-year-old Burnett continued to contact the woman for days afterward and used the victim’s telephone number to post a Craigslist ad offering sexual favors for a monetary donation.

Defense lawyer Jim Mullendore says Burnett “certainly understands what she did was wrong and acted under impulse.”
