Just a few hours after Cathy Cruz Marrero appeared on "Good Morning America" to talk about her stumble, the 49-year-old appeared in court for a hearing on five felony counts.

The charges include theft by deception and receiving stolen goods. For allegedly using a co-worker's credit cards to buy thousands of dollars of merchandise and jewelry.

The surveillance video of Marrero has racked up more than two million views on YouTube, and close to two-hundred thousand hits on abc30.com.

The security guard responsible for leaking the video has since been fired. Marrero and her lawyer are pursuing legal action against the mall.
