LOGAN — In lieu of spending two days in jail, a Smithfield resident was sentenced to 16 hours of community service for her guilty plea to charges of theft. Kristi Phillips, 23, was convicted of theft of a cell phone, a Class B misdemeanor, at the Bridgerland Applied Technology campus on Nov. 4.

Judge David Marx of Logan City Justice Court ruled that along with the community service hours, Phillips must pay a fine of $623. Her 16 hours are to be completed by Dec. 30.
