Cape woman pleads guilty to receiving stolen property

A Cape Girardeau woman accused of receiving property stolen in two late September burglaries pleaded guilty Monday and was sentenced to four years in prison. Misty Batterton, 25, waived a pre-sentencing investigation and asked to be sentenced immediately by Circuit Judge William Syler, assistant prosecuting attorney Jack Koester said. Batterton was arrested in late September after police found in her car rare coins, a Nintendo game system and games stolen in one burglary, and a diamond ring taken in a second burglary in her purse. She was arrested along with Justin D. Roach, 25, of Jackson, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor on Nov. 20 and was sentenced to six months in jail.
