The beautiful young 22 year old model was caught looting during the London riots. Smith was arrested at the scene in Church Street with her sister Alicia and their 22-year-old friend Donness Bissessar. The model was given 6 months jail time for stealing 10 packs of gum.
All three pleaded guilty at Croydon magistrates’ court to entering the store with intent to steal. The trio, who had no previous convictions, broke down in tears as they were led to the cells. Their stunned families clutched each others’ hands for comfort as District Judge Robert Hunter gave them all six-month sentences.
He said: “The tragedy is that you are all of previous good character, each of you well educated.
“You have jobs. You have got plans for future education. You have shown remorse and you have all pleaded guilty.
“However, I can’t ignore the context in which these offences were committed. You have played your part in a wider act where devastation was caused to businesses and local residents.
“In my view, although I’m retaining jurisdiction, the matter is so serious that only a custodial sentence will suffice. That, I hope, will serve as a deterrent to others.” Read story
