Wisconsin Woman Fails at Extorting Upscale Restaurant

A Wisconsin woman has just been found guilty of trying to extort The Seasons in Grand Chute by planting a rat in her food and then demanding $500,000 to hide the incident from the press. The incident took place on April 17th, 2008, and the woman, Debbie R. Miller, was arrested 3 months later. When the restaurant's insurance company ran lab tests on the rat they found that it was a domestic white rat-not a wild rat that would be found in a commercial kitchen-and that it had died as a result of being microwaved. The restaurant does not own any microwaves.
Miller could face a maximum penalty of a $10,000 fine and a 3 1/2 year prison sentence on the extortion charge. Restitution for the restaurant's lost revenue will be discussed at the sentencing.
