Notorious Shoplifter Sent To Jail

Monday June 3 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

ONE of Barnsley's most notorious shoplifters has been sent behind bars for 46 weeks for stealing - just 24 hours after being given a last chance.

Prolific Patricia Siddall, 46, had been given a suspended prison sentence and a stern warning at Barnsley Magistrates' Court, in a hope that she'd see sense and take it as a final warning.

Chantel Lowery-Green, prosecuting, said Siddall, of Darfield, stole toiletries worth £51 from Wilkinson the day after being in court.

The hearing heard Siddall had been on heroin since she was 11 when she was introduced to it at school.

But she had been on a methadone programme over the last couple of months and was 'clean' of heroin and cocaine for the first time in years.

Siddall has committed more than 80 shop thefts during her criminal career. She has served six jail sentences since 2011.

"She has served six jail sentences since 2011"

So she has learnt nothing from these jail sentences --- The best thing for these type of crimes would to be to make them serve their time in the army being taught respect and discipline... and not to give them a nice warm cushty cell with 3 meals a day, sky TV and all the comforts prison does.

Why should the army deal with a waste of oxygen like that. She should be given tougher sentences cos 6 sentences in 2 years don't amount to much each time.

There's enough litter, dog fouling, graffiti etc to clean up. Have them doing that!
Why should they be 'kept' at everyone's expense.

sending people back to prison is like sending them to a holiday camp thats why they re offend

This will be her SEVENTH jail sentence in the last 2 years and yet she still only got a lenient 46 week sentence? How can someone with such a prolific history of crime still only be given less than EIGHT percent of the maximum sentence?

Wonder how much she's cost the NHS and HMP's over the years?

They should be put to sleep like dogs. SCROUNGING, THIEVING, SCUM BAGS! They act like friggin zombies on that shit. What future is she ever going to have back in society? ZERO is the answer!

Fred would you really want people like this in the armed forces defending your country, from my point of ceiw and being a soldier myself i would rather them go to prison than have to deal witg the hassle they would bring with them, defintely wouldnt trust them near any sort of firearm

So Barnsley, yet again you demonstrate your compete ignorance and stone age mentality. 'put to sleep like dogs' - are you some kind of nazi #justicesystemstinks?
. put them in the army, prisons are too soft..

blah blah you people are unreal!

heroin dependency is a serious issue for many people in barnsley. IT is often a symptom of all kinds of other life issues and takes root in particular in areas of deprivation and unemployment. Many people go on to recover and become active members of society but this often means supporting them with numerous complex issues. Thats takes time and empathy.

Not something any of you woudl understand w ith your daily mail reader mentality

So Jim, you're pointing out that Barnsley people shouldn't treat heroin addicts as a group.....only to then do exactly the same thing in regards to Barnsley people yourself.....'Not something any of you would understand with your daily mail reader mentality'......erm....nicely done Jim....nicely done....

Reply Posted by Carl on Friday June 7 2013 at 14:08
...that being said Jim, you do have a point, nobody should be putting anybody down like dogs but people who do wrong should be made to pay for what they have done, I think personal theft and shoplifting is particularly horrific as it often is often accompanied by intimidation and threat....I don't understand why offenders aren't forced to work while they are in prison......work is good for the head, builds confidence and gives purpose, now I'm not talking about concentration camp style work, I thought I'd get that in as you seem to be a bit quick with the Nazi comparisons, but some scheme that helps towards the cost of their imprisonment which would also make the tax payers feel easier about funding this necessary imprisonment......whaddya say Jim?!

ALL smackrats should be made to go cold turkey, wether they like it or not.

@jlm don't assume that I'm a 'nazi' that's a load of crap. I'm entitled to an opinion just as you are. Who are you some stuck up human rights 'do gooder'? Get real, wake up and smell the coffee - these sort of people have no intentions of changing - the proof is in the pudding! Now get your head from up your arsehole and get back to your 'do gooder' job!

I agree with justicesystemstinks and yeah that JLM stuck up thinking everyone with a voice is thick.

Most people in Barnsley would say the same as Pete n #justice comment just ant got guts to say it in case tossers like jlm get on their case

Reply Posted by JLM on Friday June 7 2013 at 12:05
