The girl, who cannot be named because of her age, targeted three homes in a 12-day period stealing items including a knife.She was eleven.
Despite the seriousness of the crimes and because of her young age she was only sentenced to a six month contract with the Southend youth offender panel. It means her sentence will consist of working with agencies to try and stop her committing more crimes.*rolls eyes*
Her mother was also punished.Oh! Well, that's certainly a change!
Errr, 'punished', how, exactly..?
First she was ordered to attend the meetings throughout the six months.Ooh! Harsh!
Her mother must pay £250 compensation to the first victim and £40 to the third victim in £20 instalments.Why so low? Because she's on benefits, of course...
