DARLINGTON - A Madison woman was sentenced to prison last week for setting up the armed robbery of a Darlington man by posing as a prostitute and for passing letters to her boyfriend while they were inmates together in the Lafayette County Jail. Gisselle Louise Carlsen, 31, pleaded no contest Wednesday in Lafayette County Circuit Court to a Class E felony count of armed robbery, as a party to a crime, and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison followed by five years on extended supervision. As part of her plea agreement, misdemeanor charges of theft and possession of marijuana and a controlled substance were dismissed but "read in," meaning the judge could consider them in his sentencing.
