A WOMAN with severe alcohol problems was given one last chance by a magistrate after she pled guilty to a host of thefts.
Charlene Pigeon, 22, Godman Road, Chadwell St Mary pleaded guilty to five thefts from stores in Grays as well as the assault of a shopkeeper at the One Stop Shop in Grays on the 2nd October, last year.
But the chair of magistrates, Mr Delphs took mercy on Pigeon who admitted to severe alcohol problems.
He said: “You have an opportunity to turn your life around. Sort out your fines and attend your courses.”
Pigeon was given a 12 month community order.
