Finally, an update from Sarah-Bell’s Mom! After having successfully accomplished her master mind theft of thyroid medication, supposedly safely stored in a closed cupboard, she was arrested by her mother and immediately delivered to doggy jail, in the form of the veterinary clinic, where she was charged with “destruction of property” and “willful bodily harm to self”.
Her sentence was set at one night in jail, with needle torture (for the purposes of a drip) and life-time probation.
Although we are delighted that she has now done her time and has been released, we are fearful that she is likely to revert to her life of crime. This is NOT her first offense. She has a previous sentence of “malicious razor-blade eating”, along with numerous, less life-threatening “destruction of property” charges. Her latest mug shot, sent courtesy of her Mom, shows her nonchalantly beginning to eat a clothes hanger.
What do you think her chances are and do you believe that Probation is a sufficient sentence?
