Thank Goodness justice has been served, because I feel safer already:
With her once-jilted fiance at her side, runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks pleaded no contest Thursday to a felony charge and wept as she was sentenced to probation, community service and a fine.
“I’m truly sorry for my actions and I just want to thank Gwinnett County and the city of Duluth,” a crying Wilbanks told the judge as she pleaded no contest to making a false report.
She was sentenced to two years of probation and 120 hours of community service. The judge also ordered her to continue mental-health treatment and pay the sheriff’s office $2,550.
If she successfully completes her probation, the felony will be erased from her record, Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter said.
With this, people will recognize that the law is not something to be mocked. [/sarcasm]
