A 55-year-old former parole officer accused of stealing lobsters from a Crandon grocery store last December, has taken a plea deal and will avoid a jury trial.
Karen Boodry pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct Friday. As result, a charge of retail theft was dismissed.
According to court documents, surveillance video from the business showed a former employee, Donald Kilbury, 18, watch a woman place two lobsters into her purse.
Investigators recognized the woman as Karen Boodry, a parole agent at time. Kilbury, the woman's grandson, was also initially charged but those charges were dismissed in March.
The video showed Boodry take two lobsters out of plastic packaging, place them in her purse, and rearrange the containers to hide the empty packages. The lobsters were both valued at around $25.
During questioning, Boodry said she may have been drinking at the time.
Boodry received no jail time, but was ordered to pay a $300 fine.
The Department of Corrections said Boodry retired on January 23.
