A serial shoplifter was sentenced for his 183rd conviction yesterday.
Robert Knowles, 66, pictured right, appeared at Plymouth Crown Court charged with stealing three tins of fish and three bottles of wine from Tesco.Was this the final straw?
Heh! Of course not:
Judge Paul Darlow gave him a prison sentence of 120 days but Knowles was released immediately having already spent 61 days in custody.Still, he's keeping a lot of folks in employment:
Knowles, of George Place in Millbay, will remain on probation licence and will receive help from Adult Social Care.What, no 'Thinking Skills' course?
