North Cumbria woman admits committing first criminal offence – at age of 52

Carlisle Crown Court

A WOMAN has admitted committing her first criminal offence – a north Cumbria house burglary – at the age of 52.

Elizabeth Mallinson faced one charge when she appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.

Mallinson pleaded guilty to burgling a dwelling at South View Road close to Todhills, north of the city, on June 27 this year, and the theft of cheques and lottery tickets to the value of £3,600.

Judge Julie Clemitson adjourned the case to allow psychiatric and pre-sentence reports to be prepared.

Mallinson’s lawyer, Mark Shepherd, told the court: “This lady is a lady of previous good character.”

Mallinson, of Blackford, near Carlisle, is due to be sentenced by a judge on February 7.

In the meantime she was granted bail by Judge Clemitson.
