Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.- Layceigh Rae Compton was sentenced in court Thursday afternoon, Feb. 18.

Compton was sentenced to seven years in the Missouri Department of Corrections. Still, as part of a plea agreement, Greene County Judge Mark Powell suspended the sentence and granted Compton five years probation and was ordered to pay over $51,000 of restitution to the victims.

“Oh, I think there’s a lot of people that would like to see her behind bars, but the truth is I’d rather her have to pay her restitution,” said Gina Roblin, a witness and former co-worker. “I’ve been following this now since November of 2018. I feel like stealing from a company for anybody that your work for is wrong.”

In December, Compton pleaded guilty to a class C felony of stealing $25,000 or more.

Compton stole money from around 45 different tenants from 2017 through 2018.
