SHOPLIFTER Alisha Parke is fac­ing “an in­evitable cus­to­dial sen­tence,” a judge warned her.

Judge Michael Cul­lum was told at Glouces­ter Crown Court the 30 year old has five out­stand­ing shoplift­ing of­fences and five out­stand­ing breaches of court or­ders await­ing sen­tence.

A pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer said they had tried ev­ery­thing with Parke and “there is no al­ter­na­tive but to rec­om­mend a cus­to­dial sen­tence”.

Parke has been sent to prison on a num­ber of pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sions.

The judge said: “This de­fen­dant is look­ing at an in­evitable cus­to­dial sen­tence and will be sen­tenced for all mat­ters on May 17 at this court.”

Parke, for­merly from Chel­tenham, is cur­rently liv­ing in Cardiff.
