MARION -- A Williamson County judge Tuesday sentenced Dusty M. Bozarth, also known as Dusty Avery, to three-and-a-half years in prison for retail theft and three years for unlawful use of a credit card.The sentences will run concurrently.

The retail theft occurred on April 10, 2017, when Bozarth, of Creal Springs, knowingly took possession of merchandise from the Target store in Marion without paying for said items. The unlawful use of a credit card conviction stemmed from Jan. 8, 2018, where Bozarth used a credit card that did not belong to her in attempt to purchase merchandise at the Dillard's store in Marion.

Bozarth has prior theft convictions in other counties, including a felony theft conviction out of Saline County where she served over two years in DOC.

"I want to thank the Marion Police Department for another excellent job in their efforts to stop theft and fraudulent activity against our retail stores in Williamson County." said Williamson County State's Attorney Brandon Zanotti.
