Julia Greenwood, 42, the owner of the popular Roxy’s Bar on Main Street in Allentown, was placed on probation by Erie County Court Judge Kenneth F. Case Thursday for five years and ordered to remain drug and alcohol free. On Dec. 20 she pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny and petit larceny counts for writing $4,450 in phoney bank checks and for and using the credit card a patron dropped in her establishment to make $818 in personal purchases.

The judge told Greenwood, who has reportedly already made full restitution to the victimized female patron and for the bank fraud, that he knew Greenwood’s bar ran into financial troubles after another owner pulled out but that did not justify her actions.

Greenwood, who still faces possible action by the State Liquor Authority which could revoke her operating license, told the judge she regrets her actions.
