A St. Michael woman will do 100 hours of community service having pleaded guilty to stealing $62 worth of items on January 21, 2019.
She is Kim Howard of Bank Hall Main Road, who will return to court on April 26, 2019.
Prosecutor, Sergeant Carrison Henry told the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, presided over by acting Magistrate Anika Jackson, that on the day of the incident, Howard entered Paradise Beauty Supply and was observed by security placing items including deodorant, bath and body spray in her bag, and paying for some. As she was about to leave the store, security approached her and told of their observations and when her bag was searched, items were found that had not been paid for.
Her counsel, attorney-at-law, Samuel Legay begged the court to be lenient, noting it was the first time she had come before the court.
