FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan woman accused of stealing flowers from local cemeteries that authorities say she used to decorate her home has been sentenced to jail.

A judge in Flint sentenced Lisa Corcoran of Vienna Township on Monday to nine months in jail, with credit for 36 days already served. The Flint Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2uRk92h ) she pleaded guilty in June to attempted larceny of items valued at between $1,000 and $20,000.

The 44-year-old Corcoran also will serve three years of probation and perform community service.

She was originally charged with larceny after authorities say more than 100 items, including a handmade bench as well as flowers, were taken earlier from 24 gravesites at two cemeteries. Corcoran was arrested after someone saw a car full of flowers leaving a cemetery.
