STAMFORD, CONN. (AP) - A New York socialite charged with shoplifting two scarves from a Greenwich boutique plans to apply for a diversionary probation program that could leave her without a criminal record.

The Stamford Advocate reports ( https://bit.ly/qJuv78) that a lawyer for 38-year-old Beata Boman told a Superior Court judge Monday that Boman will apply for accelerated rehabilitation when she returns to court on Aug. 8.

Boman was charged in June with stealing an $11,000 scarf from Richards of Greenwich. Another larceny charge was added after police say a review of surveillance video revealed the earlier theft of a less expensive scarf.

Attorney Mark Sherman, who represented Boman at Monday’s arraignment, says she hasn’t been the same since she had brain surgery and is seeking intensive therapy. He has described her as ashamed and remorseful.
