“You Are Becoming Institutionalised But You Leave Us No Choice”

A GIRL, 17, was sentenced to four months detention for stealing a £60 bike after a magistrate told her he had been left with no choice.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pled guilty to stealing a bicycle on the 4th August at Corringham Town Centre.

She had told the police: “He had given me the big mouth so I nicked the bike.”

Chairman of Magistrates, Peter Samson heard that the girl had been incarcerated on a number of occasions and this offence was a breach of her current licence.

The Youth Offending Team informed the court that she refused to work with them.

He said: “I fear that even at the age of seventeen, you are becoming instiutionalised but you leave us no choice.”

She was sentenced to a four month detention and training order.


  1. About time that the courts started handing out custodial sentences to these scrotes, all too long they have allowed them to get away with a slap on the wrist.
