  • Paige McMicahel, 55, of Caldwell admitted to stealing from Canyon County Meals on Wheels and the Canyon County Senior Center.

The former coordinator of the Canyon County Meals on Wheels program and the Caldwell Senior Center, who admitted to stealing from both organizations, was sentenced June 3 to 200 days of house arrest.

3rd District Judge Bradly Ford also told 55-year-old Paige McMichael that she must pay court costs and $1,000 in fines. She has already paid $7,200 in restitution to the two charities.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Ford sentenced McMichael to nine years in prison—three years fixed—but suspended the sentence in favor of house arrest and six years of supervised probation.

The Press-Tribune reports that McMichael had several opportunities to take responsibility for her actions, and despite her guilty plea, she continued to dodge accountability during her pre-sentence investigation.

McMichael must be fitted with a GPS monitoring device at her own expense within ten days.
