BATAVIA, NY (WKBW) - A Batavia woman who had agreed to wear a sign admitting her guilt to stealing from an area restaurant will be spared her sentence, according to The Batavian.

Suzanne Corona had agreed to wear signs that said "I stole from South Beach Restaurant and got caught" while walking along Main Street in Batavia as a way to avoid criminal charges.

Corona was accused of ransacking the buffet line at South Beach restaurant in Batavia last month.

The owner of the restaurant, Ken Mistler, told The Batavian that his change of heart came after speaking with Corona's husband, who asked if he could stand beside his wife to protect her while she carried the signs.

Corona still faces sentencing for a public lewdness conviction after being caught in a sex act in a public park back in June.
