A WOMAN has been jailed for 25 weeks after racking up her 109th criminal conviction.

Maryann Jobson, 29, of Joy Paine Close, Boston, was sent to custody after pleading guilty to stealing eight T-shirts valued at £100 from Marks and Spencer in Boston Market Place on April 24.

Boston Magistrates heard the offence was committed while she was subject to a suspended prison sentence which she had already breached on an earlier occasion.

Mitigating, Beris Brickles told the court that unemployed Jobson had a long standing drug addiction and was using two bags of heroin a day along with her prescribed methadone.

He said Jobson accepted she would be sent to custody and felt a spell of forced detoxification behind bars was the only way she would regain control of her life.

    What surprises me is that she could find someone to try and mitigate on her behalf? This sort of report is the type that makes my blood boil!!

    Her 109th criminal conviction, and she's only 29 years old, this is only the tip of the iceberg, how many other crimes has she got away with? She must be at it every flipping day!

    If she breached an earlier suspended sentence, why was she not jailed then. Its fine giving people a second chance (or 108), but the courts should really carry things through otherwise what is the point of sentencing in the first place.

    Classy. Such a shame that transportation was knocked on the head.
