Woman sentenced to 10 days in jail for library theft


It's ten days in jail for a former Iowa City woman accused of stealing more than $1,000 in materials from the city's public library -- by using her children's library cards.

Fatima Perkins of Harvey, Illinois, pleaded guilty to third-degree theft. She was also ordered to pay a $625 fine as well as restitution, court costs and attorney fees.

Perkins used her four children's cards to check out 51 items from the library last year and moved out of town without returning them.

She was arrested in July.
