Providence woman pleads guilty to shoplifting

Amy Rose Gould, 33, pleaded guilty to theft, a third-degree felony and misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and assault.

LOGAN — A 33-year-old Providence woman has waived her right to a preliminary hearing and pleaded guilty to felony theft and two other misdemeanor charges.

Amy Rose Gould appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday afternoon accepting a plea deal to reduced charges. Under conditions of the agreement, she pleaded guilty to theft, a third-degree felony and misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and assault. The remaining six charges were dismissed.

State prosecutor Spencer Walsh told the court, Gould attempted to steal several items from a clothing store on November 10. As she attempted to leave, a store employee confronted her, grabbing her purse. She reportedly punched the man in the face and ran into the parking lot where another person tried to stop her.

Walsh said Gould had a child waiting for her in a car outside when she fled. She was later arrested and held without bail in the Cache County Jail.

After pleading guilty, Judge Kevin Allen reduced Gould’s bail to $5000 and ordered her to appear again in court February 9 for sentencing.

Gould is also facing probation violations on burglary and drug possession charges out of Juab County.
