Daily Bee: North Idaho Woman Avoids Jail Time With Numerous Excuses

Posted By on Sun, Sep 1, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Prosecutors say they're running out of patience for a North Idaho woman and her countless reasons for avoiding jail time.

Nicole Love, 37, Priest River, entered an Alford Plea—admitting no wrongdoing but conceding she could be convicted—in 2010, after being accused of embezzling $46,000 from a former employer.The trial was delayed repeatedly due to Love's complications with pregnancy. Ultimately, she was told to pay restitution and sentenced to two to five years in jail, but the judge suspended all but 90 days of her sentence.

But the Bonner County Daily Bee reports that a series of incidents have kept Love from the terms of her sentence:

-Love claimed a benefactor was going to pay her resistution but never paid up;
-Medical problems with some of her children caused other delays;
-When the judge insisted that Love begin her three-month custodial sentence in April, the terms of her incarceration were altered due to a new pregnancy;
-Love was excused from jail in May to attend a son's graduation;
-This month, Love claimed she couldn't go to jail because she was hospitalized;
-Love also declined to report to jail because her daughter was involved in a bicycle accident.

Love is expected to appear before a Bonner County judge to explain her circumstances this coming Thursday, Sept. 5.
