An East Texas woman on probation after serving time for stealing nearly $20,000 in Christmas gifts meant for foster children has been accused of shoplifting.
Gregg County jail records show 48-year-old Sarah Marie Adams of Longview was being held Wednesday on a theft charge.
The Longview News-Journal reports Adams was arrested Monday and charged with shoplifting $170 worth of items. Online records don't list an attorney for Adams, who's held on $500 bond.
Adams last fall was sentenced to eight years in prison for the 2011 Christmas gift thefts, 10 years for burglary of a habitation and two years for burglary of a building.
An attorney for Adams later found a mistake in the plea deal's wording and sought a new trial. A judge amended her sentence to probation.
