Our thanks to Steve for this. An extract:
Beverley Da Costa, prosecuting, told Winchester Crown Court this morning (March 9) that Julie Mills was given additional hours of unpaid work in January 2020 for the first breach but, on November 30, went on to offend again by stealing gift bags, alcohol, and meat worth £130.66 from Sainsbury’s in Basingstoke.
She was sentenced for the offence last month at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court, and issued with a £60 fine. However, breach of such an order has a “starting point” of serving the prison time from the initial sentence, Ms Da Costa said.
Addressing Mills in relation to reports compiled on her progress with probation officers, Recorder Karim Ezzat said: “In essence they say you have been going through a very difficult time and they are suggesting that I do not activate the suspended sentence, and I agree with them.”
