MIDLAND, MI (AP) -

School is in session at the Michigan Supreme Court

Michigan's highest court is on a road trip Wednesday, hearing a case at the Midland Center for the Arts with students from area high schools and colleges in the audience.

The case involves the theft of a $58 bottle of perfume. Chandra Smith-Anthony was convicted of larceny from a person. But the appeals court said she was convicted under the wrong law because the perfume was taken from a Detroit-area Macy's -- not a person.

A Macy's detective suspected that Smith-Anthony had stolen an item and was keeping an eye on her. The employee followed her out of the Southfield store and finally confronted her.
