Just what she needed, another break from the justice system.

The city of Rock Hill Municipal Court had just one bond hearing on Friday. Just a single case to be heard from a Christmas Day arrest.
A Walmart employee went to work Christmas night at the Dave Lyle Boulevard store and left in a police cruiser, charged with felony breach of trust with fraudulent intent.
Shaska Bernetta Dye, 24 and pregnant, allegedly stole three iPads worth $1,700. Rock Hill arrest warrants say Dye was caught on store video.
Dye and another employee arrested earlier in the week are accused of taking the tablets Sunday from a secure cage in the back of the store and pretending to ring them up at a register before strolling to the parking lot, according to the arrest warrant.
It is unclear what happened to the stolen iPads, including whether they were gifts on Christmas Day that brought joy to someone who had no idea the tablets were as hot as a fire.[…]
The accusation against Dye is serious. Court records and court testimony show that Dye has two previous shoplifting convictions, from 2008 and 2012.
Because of the previous convictions, Rock Hill police leveled a property crimes enhancement charge. That means the case won’t be sent to magistrate court, where jail time is a month or less for a conviction on a misdemeanor. It means the possibility of worse.
Long knew all this as he spoke to Dye on Friday.
“I know you,” Long told Dye as the hearing began. “You have seen this old man walk at Walmart almost every morning, haven’t you?”
“I seen you too – I checked you out one time,” Dye told Long.
Long looked through Dye’s conviction records.
“You have been arrested again, for the same thing,” Long said.
Dye tried to explain, but Long cut her off, saying her case would be heard in a higher criminal court.
