MU Student Sentenced For Underwear Thefts
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri sophomore has been sentenced to probation for stealing women’s underwear from a residence hall laundry facility.
The Columbia Daily Tribune (http://bit.ly/SywCvd) reported Tuesday that 19-year-old Kevin D. Waida pleaded guilty to misdemeanor stealing. The imposition of a sentence was suspended in favor of two years of unsupervised probation.
If Waida completes probation without any problems, the conviction could be cleared from his record.
Investigators learned from six female victims that undergarments had gone missing after they did laundry in the residence hall. Detectives with the University of Missouri Police Department ultimately approached Waida, and he handed over 15 pairs of women’s underwear.
Eleven more pairs of underwear and stockings were found when police searched Waida’s dorm room. One victim reported Waida watched her do laundry.
