Woman fined $1,000 for trashing worker's office with glitter
AKRON, Ohio - A former clerk at an Ohio county's fiscal office has been fined $1,000 for trashing a co-worker's office with glitter and purple Silly String.
A judge in Akron also ordered 25-year-old Samantha Lockhart on Tuesday to complete 50 hours of community service and to write an apology.
She had been working for Summit County when police say in January she smashed photos, threw glitter and sprayed Silly String in the office after sending a resignation notice.
Prosecutors say Lockhart also destroyed a computer, scanner, printer and keyboard.
Lockhart told the Akron Beacon Journal after sentencing that she didn't do everything she was accused of doing.
She said everyone makes mistakes, but a prosecutor told the judge Lockhart didn't show any remorse.
