Annie Young, of Hertford, was charged with obtaining 3 pairs of boots from Graveson’s, by false pretences.
In consequence of presenting a note purporting to come from another person, the defendant was allowed to take 3 pairs of boots, valued at £1 9s 4d, on approval. The defendant was subsequently found to be wearing 1 pair, a friend of hers another pair, whilst the 3rd pair had been pawned. The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge.
Miss Dean, the Probation Officer, said that this had been the girl’s first offence, and that work had been promised her if she were to be bound over. The Bench agreed. The defendant was bound over, under the supervision of the probation officer, for 12 months.
