Suspended sentence for Darlington woman who stole clothes and stationery
A WOMAN who stole clothes and stationary from high street shops has been given a suspended sentence.
Emma Stubbs, of Corporation Road, Darlington, stole £86 worth of clothes from Debenhams and £12 of stationary from Clinton Cards, in Middlesbrough, on June 18 this year.
The 27-year-old admitted two charges of theft when she appeared at Darlington Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday, September 5), which put her in breach of a conditional discharge imposed in February this year for another theft offence.
The court heard Stubbs, who is heavily pregnant, is also on a drug rehabilitation order and has recently been returning negative drug tests.
Magistrates sentenced her to 12 weeks in custody, suspended for 12 months, as well as a community order with 12 months of supervision to run alongside her existing order. She was also ordered to pay an £80 victim surcharge.
