Inebriated Thief Ordered To Write Essay: How A Lady Should Behave
"A North Carolina judge says a woman convicted of resisting a public officer and being intoxicated and disruptive must write an essay on being a lady.
Toni Marie King, 21, of Warrenton, pleaded guilty June 28 in Halifax County District Court to charges of resisting a public officer and being intoxicated and disruptive in exchange for prosecutors dropping charges of assaulting a government official, larceny and possession of stolen goods, The Daily Herald, Roanoke Rapids, N.C., reported ."
I`m not a big fan of creative sentencing; I`m of the opinion that nothing makes the point more eloquently than a stretch behind bars.
However I concur that an inebriated woman who steals beer from a store, and curses the arresting officer is severely lacking in ladylike qualities.
Obviously this drunkard is clueless what it means to be a lady, in order to write her essay she will have to do extensive research online.
Maybe some of the material she reads will sink in, and the next time she`s arrested she will at least refrain from screaming obscenities at the officer.
King was sentenced to 12 months supervised probation, and a substance abuse and alcohol assessment.
