GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A 24-year-old Wyoming woman who claimed she shoplifted from Walmart as part of her research for a college term paper on kleptomania has pleaded guilty to two counts of felony shoplifting.

Lydia Marie Cormaney also pleaded guilty Jan. 3 in District Court to two counts of misdemeanor shoplifting.

As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend she serve suspended three- to six-year sentences on the felonies with three years of supervised probation and suspended 180-day jail sentences on the misdemeanors with six months of probation, all concurrent.

The Gillette News Record reports that she also must pay restitution on all the counts.

Sentencing is set for June 4.
