The wife of the Pennsylvania budget secretary was sentenced to five years probation in connection with two 2010 retail theft incidents, including stealing almost $1,000 worth of groceries from Wegman's.

A Cumberland County court judge sentenced Georgina Zogby to 24 months probation and 24 hours of community service for stealing merchandise from T.J. Maxx in January 2010. She also received 36 months probation and 36 hours community service for stealing $955 in groceries from Wegmans in May 2010, according to the Patriot News of Harrisburg.

Zogby, 48, who is the wife of Charles Zogby, a member of Gov. Corbett's cabinet, faced up to five years each on the two retail theft counts. She has two outstanding DUI cases pending.

In the first DUI indicident last July, Zogby led police on a middle-of-the-night chase forcing them to put down nail strips to stop her. The case sparked controversy after it was learned that a state police officer left Corbett's security detail to pick up Zogby after her arrest.

In the second case, Zogby was found to have a blood-alcohol content of .117 and a suspended driver's license after she crashed and flipped her BMW on Sept. 28 near her home outside of Harrisburg, according to news reports. Pennsylvania's legal BAC limit is .08.
