Henrico woman nabbed by cigarette butt avoids jail time

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A Henrico woman linked to a crime scene by a cigarette butt will avoid jail time.    

Melissa Miffleton won't have to server her ten-year sentence if she completes an alternative program, according to the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

She pleaded guilty to one count of burglary in April, in connection to a home break-in in New Kent. Miffleton admitted to tossing a cigarette in the front yard of the home while leaving the scene. Her DNA was already in the state's system for a previous grand larceny years ago.
