Donald Trump has been used all the power behind being the leader of the free world to attack four freshman congresswoman of color. That does not make him look like some big man in the political arena, but there is a young Republican woman who may be able to help him out with that.
Stella sent out a series of tweets that read:
‘I am not guilty of these crimes. In this country I am innocent until proven guilty and that is the law. If I was guilty of crimes, I would never run for public office, putting myself in the public eye under a microscope to be attacked by all political sides.’
The police records said Stella gave police a statement. She blamed post-traumatic stress syndrome (now known as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD) due to a severe violent assault in 2008. She:
‘…remembers arriving at Target to purchase items but nothing else…normally she goes to Target with someone because of anxiety around people.’
The woman was charged with felony theft for the crime at Target and will face a sentence of up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
According to The Guardian:
‘Police and court records said a warrant was put out for Stella’s re-arrest for alleged contempt of court on 4 April, after she failed to show up for a court hearing. Officers in nearby Bloomington then arrested Stella on 28 April after she was allegedly seen by security staff at a Cub Foods grocery store stealing a bottle of tick spray for cats, and placing other items under her purse so that they could not be seen.
The Guardian reported the police and court records read:
‘When they checked her identification, police officers discovered the open warrant for Stella’s arrest over her failure to appear in court for the earlier alleged shoplifting, their incident report said.’
In addition, The Guardian added this notice:
‘She is charged with the thefts under her former surname, which the Guardian agreed not to report because she said it could endanger her safety.’
