Manchester woman accused of stealing ring from priest gets bail
Djemi Lazzare, 23, is charged with a felony of theft by unauthorized taking and a misdemeanor of theft by deception. A probable cause hearing on the felony charge was set for Jan. 8, 2014.
Judge Gregory Michael told Lazzare he was setting the $2,000 personal recognizance bail so she could be with her children for the holiday.
But he also told her: "Stay out of trouble."
Lazzare, of 501 Kimball St., was working as an LNA at the Bishop Peterson home for retired religious at 221 Orange St., last October when she allegedly took the ring belonging to Father Cornelius Goggins and pawned it at Cash for Gold.
Court documents show Lazzare, who was fired after the incident, initially suggested it could have been a friend who was visiting her at work who took the ring. But police said photos taken as part of the iLeads program for pawn shops, showed Lazarre was the person who pawned the ring.
Michael, who said he remembered hearing about the theft, said: "Wasn't it blessed by the Pope?" Michael wanted to know if Father Goggins got his ring back. Police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier said the ring was recovered from the pawn shop.
Pelletier had sought $1,000 cash/surety bail for Lazzare, saying she was convicted of a drug misdemeanor in Hillsborough County Superior Court North, but Michael set personal recognizance bail, telling Lazzare: "So you can have a Merry Christmas."
