A COURT’S patience ran out on Friday for a 28-year-old mother-of-three who admitted three shoplifting charges despite being on two suspended sentences.

Naomi Williams of King’s Road, Llandudno, had stolen spirits from Marks and Spencer and goods worth £680 in a trolley dash at a B and M store.

Graham Parry, defending, said the B and M store theft was according to the defendant to “replenish” after her children’s Christmas presents had been stolen.

She was sent to prison for 20 weeks, including 16 weeks of the suspended sentences.

“We do activate the suspended sentences because the public would have no confidence in the system if we did not,” chairwoman Jean Bryson told her at Llandudno court.

“It gives me no pleasure imposing the sentence on you.”
