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.
