Warren woman sentenced for door-to-door popcorn sales scam

Posted: Updated:
NEWTON FALLS, Ohio -

A Warren woman will not go to jail for her part in a door to door popcorn sales scam. 35-year-old Christina Hill appeared in Newton Falls Municipal Court on Thursday to answer a charge of theft.

She and Brian Billman were charged after an investigation revealed that the two used Hill's 14-year-old son dressed in a Boy Scout uniform to sell the popcorn in Lordstown and surrounding areas.  The popcorn was never delivered.

The judge handed down a ten-day suspended sentence to Hill, and noted that she had already repaid the fifty dollars she took from her victims.

Billman awaits sentencing in Trumbull County court on nine counts of theft from an elderly person.

The teen faces charges in Trumbull County Family Court.
