AVON LAKE, Ohio (AP) - The wife of a police chief in northeast Ohio is serving a 10-day jail sentence for shoplifting.

Elaine Freeman - wife of North Ridgeville Police Chief Mike Freeman - was sent to jail for 10 days Tuesday for shoplifting at a Kohl's department store in nearby Avon.

Her attorney said she pleaded no-contest to petty theft. She'll be on house arrest for another 30 days after she finishes the jail sentence. The attorney said she's undergoing counseling and "feels terrible for what she put her family through."

It was the second time she has been convicted of shoplifting.

Her husband was reprimanded by the city after he became angry over his wife's September arrest.
