Mr Rafati said she was keen to be released from prison on bail to resolve childcare and housing issues.In which case, why are her kids not in foster care? She doesn’t appear able to look after herself, never mind them…
She had difficulties with parenting, alcohol abuse and - in the past - drugs, he said, adding: "She has a difficult, chaotic and complex lifestyle."
The court heard that Pinkerton, 41, had been convicted 18 times for a total of 30 offences since 1987.*sigh*
Granting bail, Judge Paul Darlow told Pinkerton she had already served some of her sentence and might serve more, warning her that being granted bail was no indication of the eventual outcome.I repeat: Why is this woman allowed custody of small children when the RSPCA wouldn't allow her to adopt a stray dog?
