Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words Admits or admits to?
OP The Charlotte paper had a story that led off:
A Charlotte woman admitted Thursday to stealing another woman's identity and using it to by a Lincoln Continental.
Is the first to in the sentence correct? I would not have put it in there, though if I had written pled guilty instead of admitted I would have used. And if I had said confessed, but I don't think it's correct to add the word to to the verb admit. Any thoughts?
Also, a Continentl? A woman of absolutely no taste! If you are gonna steal steal a real car like a Lamborghini. Speaking of which, a neighbor of mine is bringing his Lambo up from SC next week and has told me I can drive it!!!!!
