Watercooler Talk
PIQUA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman is serving 60 days in jail because police said she ordered adult magazines in a neighbor’s name during a feud. Police said the 47-year-old woman told authorities she wanted payback after being charged with a misdemeanor because of a complaint made by the other woman.

The neighbor told police she was billed hundreds of dollars for magazines such as Playboy and Hustler.

The woman pleaded no contest to felonious tampering with records and has been in jail since her March 16 conviction.

Her husband said he can’t believe she was sent to jail over the dispute.

Her lawyers have asked a judge to suspend the rest of the sentence, noting it was her first felony conviction.
