STEALING FROM ELDERLY
A 38-year-old woman who stole $7200 from an elderly couple while working at a rest home in Southland appeared at Invercargill District Court on Tuesday. The women applied for a discharge without conviction. The Judge noted the woman’s guilty plea, but did not enter a conviction due to the application. She remanded the woman to reappear in court on March 7, and ordered restorative justice be explored.
