An Antioch woman has admitted stealing a therapy dog used to help a child with autism.
Betty Peltier pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge as part of a plea agreement. She was ordered to perform 100 hours of public service and serve one year of court supervision.
Authorities say the 58-year-old woman took a Chihuahua named "Peanut" when it wandered away from a family's home, then called the family several times and asked about a reward, police said.
