Angry panhandler shattered more than $9,000 in windows because no one was giving her money, gets jail

Approved ~~ MJM

A Portland panhandler who threw rocks through the windows of five businesses in the Lloyd District because she said no one was giving her money was sentenced Wednesday to 20 days in jail and ordered to pay more than $9,000 for the damage.

Marlena Rochelle Neely, 30, told authorities she was homeless, had been asking people for $5 and would shatter a window every time she was refused because she was tired of people not helping her, according to a probable cause affidavit.
