A former Mrs. America convicted of switching price tags on clothing was sentenced to two years probation and 10 days of community service earlier this week.

A release from the Hennepin County Attorney's Office stated Jennifer Kline, 51 of Wayzata, received a stay of imposition on her sentence, meaning if she completes her probation, the felony charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor.

Kline was convicted in August of one count of theft by swindle.

According to the criminal complaint, Kline would purchase expensive clothing from the Southdale Macy's, take the price tags from the new items and attach them at her home to previously-owned items, and take those clothing items to the Mall of America Macy's, where she'd return them for credit card refunds.
