CARLISLE, Pa. - The wife of Pennsylvania's budget secretary pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of retail theft. Georgina Zogby, 48, of Mechanicsburg, entered the pleas in Cumberland County Court in Carlisle, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reported. She is to be sentenced next month for stealing merchandise from T.J. Maxx and groceries from Wegmans, the paper reported. Defense lawyer Bill Fulton said he would seek a sentence of probation, saying Zogby had been sober for seven months and was undergoing treatment. Zogby awaits trial on a drunken-driving charge.
