'Barbie bandit' pleads guilty
Likening her story to the parable of the prodigal son, Heather Lyn Johnston's supporters hope that a Cobb County judge will spare her a prison sentence for her involvement in a February bank heist in Acworth.
Johnston made a tragic mistake, they told Superior Court Judge Mary E. Staley. But since her arrest on theft and drug charges, she has turned her life around, earning high praise from her boss at a vacuum cleaner sales company.
Yeah, she's turned her life around. You've got to be kidding me. SHE ROBBED A BANK. If they let her skate on this, everyone will use that excuse. And from the looks of her picture, she's gonna be very popular in prison.
The judge has deferred her sentence until after the trial of the other defendants.
