GRAHAM, N.C. (AP) - A Graham woman has entered an Alford plea and been sentenced as a habitual felon for selling stolen cars to auto salvage businesses.
The Times-News of Burlington reports (http://bit.ly/ZGzHN8 ) 39-year-old Anita Kay Lloyd entered the Alford plea on three counts of obtaining property by false pretense and attaining habitual felon status. In an Alford plea, a defendant doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges there's enough evidence for a conviction.
In exchange, the state dismissed charges of felony forgery and felony uttering.
Alamance County District Attorney Pat Nadolski said Lloyd was charged last May with helping sell 10 motor vehicles to auto salvage yards, and with helping steal a semi-trailer from a residence and selling it to a recycling business.
Lloyd was sentenced to between 62 months to 87 months behind bars.
