A former Rochester Hills contract bus driver has pleaded guilty to shoplifting at Parisian, according to reports.
Roseanne Stacho was arrested Sept. 21 by deputies from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office at The Village of Rochester Hills, where a loss prevention officer observed her attempting to steal $543 in clothing. Her school bus was parked outside the store.
According to a report in the Oakland Press, Stacho pleaded guilty to first-degree retail fraud, a felony, for theft of items worth $200 to $1,000. She could be sentenced to a maximum of five years in prison and fines on Nov. 30 when she appears before Oakland County Circuit Judge Colleen O'Brien, the report stated. Her sentencing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m.
Stacho resigned from her position as a bus driver for Durham School Services, which is the company contracted to manage transportation services for Rochester Community Schools.
Durham representatives stated that had Stacho not resigned she would have been terminated for not reporting a February arrest, also for retail fraud.
