Vivienne Cummings, 51, 40 Hawley Road, Falkirk, pinched a quantity of perfume from Debenhams in The Howgate Shopping Centre on January 23, 2020.

She appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, July 29, where defence solicitor Simon Hutchison said a background report indicated his client had been “doing well” since committing the offence at the now-closed store.

Cummings had previously been placed on a structured deferred sentence for six months late last year.

Her lawyer added: “She asked if the structured deferred sentence could continue.”

Responding to the solicitor, Sheriff Derek Livingston said: “There seems to be a possible new matter.

“I’m not clear about that.

“I thought the report sounded positive.”

Sentence was continued for three months for Cummings to continue being of good behaviour.

A review was scheduled for September 28.
