Felon Accused By Feds Of Girl Scout Cookie Theft Gets Six Extra Months In Prison

The convicted felon accused of stealing Girl Scout cookies from a fellow halfway house resident was ordered today to spend an additional six months in prison for violating terms of his federal probation.

In addition to the extra time in custody, Terrell Lillybridge will have to serve an additional year on probation, ruled federal Judge John Jarvey. The 30-year-old Iowa man, pictured at right, was sentenced this morning following a hearing in U.S. District Court in Davenport.

In a petition seeking the revocation of Lillybridge’s supervised release, a federal probation officer reported that Lillybridge last month “was found to have stolen another residents’ Girl Scout cookies” at the halfway house where he was voluntarily residing. Lillybridge was also accused of failing to disclose that he was fired from his factory job.

It was the latter charge that resulted in Lillybridge’s additional six months in prison, according to a Department of Justice spokesman, who added that the “allegation concerning stolen Girl Scout cookies was not a basis for the revocation.”

Lillybridge was sentenced to 57 months in prison (and two years probation) following his 2007 conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
