Former Safe for Women executive director sentenced


A former executive director for the Safe House for Women was sentenced to five years in the Department of Corrections on Monday, Sept. 21.

Allison Leonard was also sentenced to 120 days in the shock program.

This means that about two or three weeks before the 120th day, the DOC will send a report to the judge, which will have updates on behavior, etc.

If her behavior is good, Leonard will only serve 120 days and be on probation after that. If her behavior is bad, she will serve the full five years.

Leonard was accused stealing more than $500 from the shelter for personal use.
