WORTHINGTON ��� Former Walmart employee Liliana Hidalgo entered a plea of guilty to stealing more than $4,600 while working as a cashier and received a stay of adjudication Wednesday at her sentencing hearing.

This ruling means that if Hidalgo completes her allotted five years of probation without violating the terms and also pays the appropriate restitution, then her case will be dismissed, and she will not have a felony on her record.

Fifth Judicial District Judge Terry Vajgrt ordered Hidalgo to pay back $4,621 in restitution. She has 60 days to either pay the full amount or set up a payment schedule.

Vajgrt added that once Hidalgo is finished paying restitution, it's possible for her to qualify for early discharge from probation.
