Manassass, Va. (AP) – A Mount Vernon woman who kept showing up at a car dealership – claiming that God had ordered them to give her a free vehicle – is going to jail.
A Prince William County judge sentenced 41-year-old Marilyn Cole to one year in jail for trespassing on the lot in March. The judge also gave Cole a year for disorderly conduct, but suspended that sentence.
Cole had already served 30 days after trespassing at Malloy Lincoln Mercury in Woodbridge three times in December and February. She was arrested when she showed up again in March.
Cole testified earlier this year that she knew she had been ordered to stay away from the car dealership. But she insisted that God ordered her to go there. Cole said she was never rude to employees.
