Teenage mum in 'honeytrap'

A 16-YEAR-OLD girl has been remanded on bail pending sentence for stealing from a man who was offered sex during a "honeytrap" style theft.

The mother-of-one pleaded guilty yesterday at the Dublin Children's Court to two theft charges and she has also admitted a begging offence.

The court heard the girl was one of two females who enticed a man down a lane in Dublin with an offer of sex. A gold necklace, ¤40 and his mobile phone were stolen.

Judge Ryan adjourned sentencing the teen, who is from Romania, until a date in December.
