'Operation Repo' Star: No Jail Time In Stolen Wallet Case

EXCLUSIVE

 

Sonia Lopez, the "Operation Repo" star caught on camera walking off with a man's wallet, won't do any hard time for the crime.

Sonia pled no contest in court to stealing a wallet filled with $3k she pilfered from a store counter. 

Sonia originally claimed she was just being a good samaritan ... grabbing the wallet so she could return it to its owner ... but the surveillance camera footage looks super sketchy.

As part of her sentence, Sonia will have to pay the owner of the wallet $5k.  

And you thought credit card companies charged exorbitant interest.
