Woman faces fine, service for burglary


PARIS – A woman was given a deferred disposition in Oxford County Superior Court Tuesday after pleading guilty to the felony charge of burglary and misdemeanor charges of theft and criminal mischief.

If Danika Barnett, 19, of Waterville pays a $100 fine and completes 200 hours of community service, she won’t have to go to jail, court records show. If not, she will see the judge again.

According to police reports, charges stemmed from a Jan. 11, 2006, incident where police say Barnett broke into a Woodstock home with Larry Arnold, 21, of Waterville, Thomas C. McGuire, 19, of Augusta, and a juvenile. A DVD player, Vicodin pills and $316 were reported stolen. Arnold later pawned the DVD player at a pawn shop, records show.

Barnett, Arnold and McGuire were indicted on the charges in June. McGuire was given a similar sentence Jan. 3, and Arnold’s case is pending.

The four told police that the juvenile, the homeowner’s daughter, took the items as the other three watched, according to records.
