Wendy Emmons, 46, and her sons, Justin, 26 and Jordan, 24, all of Marion, avoided a jury trial Monday in Delaware County Common Pleas Court by each agreeing to plead guilty to engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, a second-degree felony, instead of additional counts that would have doubled their sentences. Five others had earlier pleaded guilty. According to testimony before the trial was to start, the thieves had described entering Kroger, Meijer and other stores and filling carts with large quantities of beef jerky, detergent pods, bags of candy or batteries. They would distract security guards and elude loss prevention measures to leave the store without paying. While the defendants agreed to pay more than $48,000 in restitution, prosecutors estimate that up to $250,000 in merchandise may have been stolen between May 2014 and December.
