A prolific shoplifter with 62 previous offences has been given one final opportunity to turn his life around by a judge after his most recent crime spree.
George McPherson, 35, of St Mary’s Crescent, Basildon, appeared at Basildon Crown Court via videolink to be sentenced for thefts totalling £2,060 earlier this year.
Sentencing McPherson, Judge David Pugh said: “When you appeared before me previously, I adjourned the matter to order a pre-sentence report. I did so because you made it clear that you wanted an opportunity to change your lifestyle. I am going to give you that opportunity. I’ve taken into account that you pleaded guilty but more importantly, I’ve taken into account your eagerness to change your life around.”
Of course he's eager. They are all
eager, when they are standing in the dock!
McPherson, who wishes to move to Kent for a fresh start, thanked the judge and was due to be released from prison yesterday.
Look out Kent shopkeepers!
"Perhaps they should also target the people sitting in town centre pubs who are waiting to buy the stolen goods." Comment by 'Scrounger' in link.
No one, not even a junky-hell especially not a junky, 1/2"s £450 of razors because he is fanatical about getting the closest shave possible. Hopefully the tealeaf will move to Kent and become a productive member of society...smuggling in tobacco so OAPS don't end up having to eat dog food this winter.
And that is why it is as it is and why no one's safe.
