Judge to give thief a chance
SHOP thief Jamie Parker has been handed a suspended prison sentence to run alongside one he received earlier this year for a burglary.
The 29-year-old, of Hope Street, Hanley, was sentenced on June 6 to nine months in prison, suspended for 18 months, with supervision and drug rehabilitation. But on July 18 he stole groceries worth £12 from Asda in Tunstall.
Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard he was seen putting items in his pocket and leaving the store without paying. Parker pleaded guilty to theft.
Recorder Stephen Lowne decided to give Parker a final chance as his interaction with probation has been described as excellent. He sentenced the defendant to six weeks in jail, suspended for 12 months, to run alongside the current order.
