A Sharon woman who entered a Brookfield home uninvited because a voice told her to do so has been convicted of felony trespass and placed on probation.
Cassandra Pacheco, 59, pleaded guilty Nov. 2, and was sentenced Jan. 25 to 5 years’ probation in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.
Brookfield police said they were dispatched to a burglary call on June 29 in the 600 block of Warner Road. The residents said they returned home, found Pacheco on their porch, and she yelled into the house for someone, leaving the residents fearful that someone else was in the house.
Brookfield and Vienna police searched the house, but found no one else there.
Pacheco told police she had been in a hospital earlier in the day and was walking around Sharon when a woman she did not know offered her a ride, police said. The woman dropped off Pacheco at the home on Warner, police said.
Pacheco said the voice told her to go to the home. The residents said they did not know Pacheco.
Pacheco entered a door that had been left unlocked, dropped three grocery bags she had with her in the kitchen, and placed two drinks she had with her in the refrigerator, police said. She warmed up a Hot Pocket and lasagna and ate them, and took a bath in the Jacuzzi, police said.
Pacheco said she put on her clothes, looked around the house, and then sat on the porch, where she was found, police said.
Pacheco was held in the Trumbull County Jail from the day of her arrest until the day of her plea.
