8:00am Tuesday 8th January 2013 in News
A SHOPLIFTER who stole expensive clothes from shops in the Golden Square will not go to jail.
Warrington Crown Court heard on Thursday how Kayleigh Bradley, aged 25, swiped numerous garments from River Island, Oasis, Warehouse and Dorothy Perkins.
The Liverpool resident’s haul included three leather jackets, tops and dresses worth a total of £580.
She was arrested when returning to steal more clothes the following day.
Bradley, who has a string of previous convictions for theft, cried throughout proceedings.
Judge Nicholas Woodward said he would not send her to prison because of problems in her personal life.
He said: “She is a young woman who lost her parents when she was 10.
“She has struggled with her life as so many children in that situation do.
“She has a baby, she is an intelligent woman.
“Everything indicates she intends to change her life.”
Bradley was sentenced to a two month curfew to be in place from 7pm to 7am.
