Woman sentenced to prison for Portsmouth Market Basket robbery
Julia Marie Konchek, 22, pleaded guilty to a felony robbery charge in Rockingham County Superior Court, admitting that she snatched a woman’s Fendi purse inside the Woodbury Avenue store on Feb. 19.
Konchek has been held at the county jail since her arrest. Her 111 days behind bars will count toward her state prison sentence.
Last week, a judge denied a request by prosecutors for an extension to seek an indictment against Roy.
The state is generally required to obtain an indictment within 90 days after a person is arrested unless it wins permission from a judge for more time to work on a case.
No second request has been filed.
Konchek and Roy were arrested by Portsmouth police shortly after the robbery in February.
Roy’s lawyer, Brian Lavallee, had argued against the state getting any kind of extension to seek an indictment against his client, and suggested they had no evidence to support the charge.
