A woman was convicted of felony theft in Roane County Criminal Court on Thursday.
Assistant District Attorney General Bob Edwards said the jury took less than an hour to find Cortney Armour guilty.
She’s scheduled to be sentenced later this year.
“We got a conviction for what we charged, so that’s always good,” Edwards said.
The incident happened on Easter Sunday 2014 at Emory Heights Baptist Church in Harriman.
Edwards said the victim, Shirley Bullard, had her purse stolen by Armour.
