KALISPELL - A Kalispell woman who was sentenced for forgery and theft, has also been sentenced for three additional prostitution charges after police said she was stealing from a man who was paying her for sex.
Andrea Wyatt, 23, was serving a three-year deferred sentence after pleading guilty to a felony charge of issuing a bad check.
Wyatt was arrested again earlier this year after she and another Kalispell man were caught stealing items from stores and trying to pawn them.
Kalispell resident Milton Courter, 77, then came forward and told authorities the couple had also stolen his checkbook and were forging checks.
He later admitted he had paid Wyatt for sex on multiple occasions, about $400 worth of cash and merchandise per encounter.
Wyatt's 2011 deferred sentence was revoked, and she pled guilty this week to felony forgery, misdemeanor theft, and three misdemeanor counts of prostitution.
She won't see any jail time, but instead will spend less than six months in the Flathead County Detention Center.
She was also sentenced to 10 years, all suspended, to the Department of Corrections. Concurrent with that, she will serve a five-year suspended sentence, and a judge has recommended she be committed to Passages, followed by pre-release.
