Iowan must pay back what she stole from Girl Scout troop

Posted: Updated:
OSAGE, Iowa (AP) -- A judge in Mitchell County has ordered a 38-year-old Osage woman to pay back the more than $1,400 she stole from her Girl Scout troop.
  
The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that Jennifer Nilges was sentenced earlier this month for theft. In addition to the order for restitution, Nilges was fined $625 and sentenced to 10 days in jail. She was given credit for time already served.
  
Nilges pleaded guilty after prosecutors lowered the charge and dropped another. Prosecutors say Nilges stole the money from the troop's account from the end of January through the first week of February.
