Granny Gem Thief Lifts a Light Sentence



An octogenarian jewel thief gets a golden deal from a judge.
86-year-old Doris Payne pleaded guilty to felony shoplifting charges near Atlanta on Wednesday March 29th.

Her sentence is only, time served, house arrest, and probation.

Perhaps the harshest punishment she received is being banned from a department store chain, and all malls in the county.

This after she admitted to swiping a necklace worth nearly two-grand.

Don’t let her age, or demeanor fool you.

Payne is an international, infamous jewel thief whose life of crime spans decades, earning her the nickname ‘Granny Gem Thief’.
