Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

JUDGE Michael Law­son, QC, said that some­thing had to be done to stop Car­pen­ter, who ad­mit­ted bur­glary, prey­ing on peo­ple. He told her: “You are clearly some­one who has found a way of mak­ing money which is thor­oughly dis­hon­est. You have used it again, de­spite be­ing sen­tenced to im­pris­on­ment on the first oc­ca­sion.” The judge said that he had no doubt that Car­pen­ter mer­ited a jail sen­tence, but agreed to im­pose 12 months sus­pended for 18 months. He called for three-monthly re­ports to en­sure she was keep­ing to the terms of the or­der. “What­ever your dif­fi­cul­ties are, you know the dif­fer­ence be­tween right and wrong,” said Judge Law­son. “You had bet­ter think care­fully about how you will lead your life in fu­ture.”
