West Palm Beach, FL (AP) - A young woman who earned the
nickname "Cookie Monster" after South Florida authorities accused
her of stealing from a Girl Scout has received probation for her
part in an armed robbery.
A Palm Beach County judge sentenced 20-year-old Stefanie Woods
on Thursday, after she pleaded guilty to felony charges of
kidnapping with a firearm and robbery with a firearm. Prosecutors
had wanted 15 years in prison.
Police say Woods helped her boyfriend and another man steal
prescription drugs from a man in 2009. She could still end up in
prison if she fails a drug test during her probation.
Woods first made the news in 2008 when she was charged with
taking money from a Girl Scout who was selling cookies in front of
a West Palm Beach grocery store.
