WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay more than $33,000 in restitution to the victims she stole from.

Jessica Coffey, 26, committed a total of seven burglaries in Turtlecreek and Clearcreek Townships in February and March. She stole various items, including firearms, televisions and a large amount of jewelry. Police believe she was burglarizing homes to support an illegal drug habit.

Coffey pled guilty in June to seven felony burglary charges and two gun specifications. Warren County Common Pleas Court Judge Neal Bronson sentenced Coffey to serve five years in prison (concurrent) on three of the burglaries, three years in prison (concurrent) on the other four burglaries, and one year in prison (consecutive) on the two gun specifications, for a total of ten years. Coffey was also ordered to pay restitution of $33,452.31 to the seven victims.

The case against co-Defendant Courtney Ralston is scheduled for trial in August.
