Appearing in Court Six Months After Her Shoplifting Arrest, Winona Ryder Gets Bruised by a Witness's Testimony and Battered by a Cameraman's Lens
Albeit a trouper in trouble. Ryder headed to a doctor for treatment, and Fox postponed proceedings until June 6. Ryder still faces up to three years and eight months in prison if Fox decides that prosecutors have enough evidence to try her for allegedly shoplifting almost $4,800 in merchandise and possessing the painkiller oxycodone without a prescription.
During his testimony, Evans—pointing to poster-size floor plans and grainy stills from a security video—described tracking Ryder for three hours from the sock department to the hat department (where she donned a beaded Eric Javits chapeau); through cosmetics and jewelry; up one escalator to the Donna Karan section; and up another escalator to Jil Sander and Gucci. Along the way, he said, she selected a number of items (see box). At one point, Evans said, he summoned a female security guard to watch Ryder through the slats of a fitting room door.
Finally, he said, Ryder walked out the door with at least some of the merchandise without visiting a cash register. Later, Geragos, who has said Ryder has some receipts, complained to PEOPLE that prosecutors "did everything they could to create a media circus." But Fox, who ordered photographers to stay 10 feet from Ryder, vowed to keep order. "There won't," he said, "be a dog and pony show."
