A WOMAN who breached a court order by shoplifting has been given another chance by a judge.

Katrina Turner, 28, was given a suspended prison sentence at Teesside Crown Court last year after she stole property from a friend’s house.

But she breached it when she went on to steal £100 of Yankee Candles from Clinton Cards earlier this year.

Yesterday, Turner, who admitted theft, was given another chance when she was given a two-month prison sentence suspended for two years.

She was also given a four-month curfew between the hours of 9pm and 7am after she admitted breaching her first suspended sentence.

Turner, of Miers Avenue, Hartlepool, was originally given six months in prison, suspended for two years, last July.

It was after she stole property worth hundreds of pounds in March 2012 from a friend’s house while the homeowner slept.

The haul included a digital camera, an iPod, a bank card and cash from the victim’s daughter’s bedroom.

Turner also made off with a mobile phone, a laptop computer and cigarettes.

The stolen bank card was later used to withdraw £250 which was caught on CCTV.

She was arrested and later admitted theft and fraud by false representation.
