    An attorney for a $1 million lottery winner accused of trying to steal $80 worth of lipstick from a New Hampshire department store says she will appeal her conviction.

    Attorney Patrick Arnold tells the Eagle Tribune the accusation against Yokatia Rodriguez stems from a "misunderstanding that could happen to anyone."

    Rodriguez was found guilty in a Salem, New Hampshire court earlier this week of attempted shoplifting. Arnold says she will appeal the verdict in the Superior Court.

    The 40-year-old Tewksbury woman was accused in December of trying to leave a Kohl's store without paying for some items in her cart. A receipt showed she paid for nearly $520 worth of stuff, but not $80 worth of lipsticks.

    Arnold says Rodriguez "looks forward to her day in Superior Court."
