Single mother stole after she was ‘terrorised’

Have your say

A hard-up single mum from Hucknall turned to shoplifting after being terrorised by her former partner, a court was told.

Vicky Arnold (31), of Story Gardens, stole from a supermarket only two days after she was given a conditional discharge for two years for another offence of theft.

But Helen Rooks (defending) told Nottingham Magistrates’ Court the offences stemmed from “a particularly difficult time” she endured with her ex-partner in the run-up to Christmas.
