Prosecutors agreed to dismiss felony charges today against Jessica Joyner, one-half of the open house bandits team that was accused of snatching $70,000 worth of belongings from posh real estate open houses in 2007, the Post reported. Together with Jennifer Jones, 39, Joyner had posed as a wealthy homebuyer at open houses on the Upper West Side, Upper East Side and in Upper Saddle River, NJ, to poach valuables from the properties while no one was looking. Both have since confessed and pleaded guilty to the scheme, offering their addictions and other mental health problems as a defense for their actions. Prosecutors said Joyner had completed a shoplifting program and has had a clean record since the 2007 robberies. Jones reached a similar plea deal earlier this year after undergoing drug and alcohol treatment. [Post]
