Amy Burnett, 37, was sentenced Wednesday in Kent County Circuit Court. She pleaded no contest to unlawfully posting a message and using a computer to commit a crime.

A woman confronted Burnett on June 22 after finding a dog left unattended in Burnett's vehicle. Police said Burnett continued to contact the woman for days afterward and used the victim's telephone number to post a Craigslist ad offering sexual favors for a monetary donation.

Defense lawyer Jim Mullendore said his client "certainly understands what she did was wrong and acted under impulse."
