Pamela Johnson, 55, is charged with second-degree criminal mischief after police say she scratched words into a man’s pickup truck causing more than $1,500 worth of damage on Sept. 25.

Johnson was sentenced in June to 90 days in jail, 90 days of house arrest and five years of probation after pleading guilty to felony second-degree grand larceny.

She’s paid back about $247,000 in restitution after she wrote and cashed checks from TCAT to feed her gambling addiction, her attorney said during her sentencing.

Johnson appeared in the Homer Town Court Tuesday where she was issued $1,000 cash bail or $4,000 bond, a court clerk said.  An official at the Cortland County Jail said Johnson is no longer in custody at the jail but said he could not provide more information about her status because she is no longer an inmate.

A court clerk at the Homer Town Justice Court said Johnson was also arraigned Tuesday and was represented by attorney Patrick Perfetti. The clerk said Johnson’s case was adjourned until Nov. 3.
