A STUDENT who dreamed of becoming a legal secretary put it all in jeopardy after she was convicted of her third theft in over a year.
The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, stole two shirts valued at £145 from House of Frasers at Lakeside on the 28th April this year.
She pled guilty. In mitigation, she said: “I had the money. I was stupid.”
The girl informed the court that she was going to college with the hopes of being a legal secretary.
Chair of Magistrates, Margaret Caisley told her: “With three convictions for theft in over a year, you are putting your career aspirations at risk.”
She was fined £70 and received a Referral Order for six months.
