LISBON - A woman accused of involvement in multiple thefts from the Walmart in Salem was sentenced in Columbiana County Municipal Court to 180 days in jail on some of the misdemeanor charges.

Jordan A. Flaker, 23, Lake Park, Sebring, was sentenced to 180 days in jail and fined $550 for theft, criminal trespassing and complicity to commit theft. According to court documents, on April 18 at the Salem Walmart, Flaker placed $652 in merchandise in a shopping cart and attempted to leave the store without paying. Additionally, on Aug. 17 she reportedly was involved in the theft of a television, also from the Salem Walmart, where she had previously been told not to return.

Prior to sentencing Assistant County Prosecutor Don Humphrey Jr. noted Flaker's "pattern of behavior is of great concern" to the state. Humphrey noted while she was out on bond from one charge, she was charged with another and also had a felony methamphetamine-related charge in Mahoning County.

She is also charged with a pending felony theft in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court where she is accused depriving the Walmart in Salem of miscellaneous television sets, a theater system, a flame helmet and a can opener between April 5 and April 18.

Defense Attorney Eric Kibler argued the meth charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor and asked for some time for Flaker to get her affairs in order before she goes to jail. About 30 days after she is scheduled to begin her jail sentence, a review hearing was set.

Todd A. Shaffer, 35, West North Avenue, East Palestine, was fined $705, had his license suspended for 180 days and ordered to attend a three-day counseling program for OVI first offense and left of center.
