Picard gets supervised probation and community service

Steven Picard

A Bullhead City man was released from the Adult Detention Center in Kingman Monday after he was sentenced for a grocery store parking lot robbery. Steven Picard, 29, is convicted of theft in a plea agreement dismissing a robbery charge.

Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said Picard confronted a customer outside Smith’s Food & Drug on Lakeside Drive on March 31. She said Picard fled after struggling to gain control of the man’s wallet from his pant pocket.

The victim was not injured during the encounter. His attorney arranged for Picard’s surrender five days after the robbery when citizens were recognizing him from surveillance video images distributed in social media and area press.

Mohave County Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle ordered a 92 day jail sentence Monday, crediting Picard for the 92 days he already spent in custody. Judge Carlisle placed Picard on supervised probation for three years and directed him to perform 120 hours of community work service.

Defense attorney Ken Sondgeroth said Picard will spend time on probation seeking treatment for drug addiction issues.
