Prison ordered for probation violations

An Altoona woman will spend 18 months in prison for violating terms of her probation stemming from a 2017 felony conviction.

Eau Claire County Judge Jon Theisen ordered Jessica N. Benoit, 38, 567 Nasturtium Lane, to spend 18 months on extended supervision following her release from prison.

Benoit was fined $574 and must pay $456 in restitution.

Benoit was originally sentenced in November to two years of probation for one count of identity theft.

According to court records, Benoit violated conditions of her probation by entering a man’s home and taking his checks, and signing them without his permission.
