Mum who stole toy faces jail

A YOUNG mother who shoplifted a toy has been warned by a judge she is "looking a prison sentence straight in the face" if she steals again.

Bridget Lawrence (21) was caught stealing the toy, as well as bathroom goods, at a Dublin supermarket.

She was given an eight-month suspended sentence and told she would be jailed if she stole again.

Lawrence, of Rosebank Place, Ninth Lock Road, Dublin 22, pleaded guilty to stealing €110.50 worth of goods at Tesco, Hillcrest, Lucan, on January 15, 2013.
