CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

A Charlottetown woman who stole clothing and skipped court dates was sentenced recently to 77 days in jail.

Kendell Marie Hardt, 26, appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown where she was sentenced on two counts of theft, two counts of failing to attend court and two counts of possessing stolen property.

Crown attorney Nathan Beck told the court Hardt went to two stores on two different occasions and stole items worth a total of more than $1,000.

In a separate incident, the police responded to a complaint that Hardt was at the Charlottetown Mall despite a trespass order.

Hardt had previously missed two court appearances and had an outstanding warrant for failing to attend court.

The court heard that when the police arrested Hardt she had bags that held items stolen from two more stores.

Those stolen items had a total value of $675.33.

In sentencing Hardt, Orr gave her credit of 19 days for time spent in custody after her arrest, leaving her 58 still to serve.

Along with the jail time, Hardt will be on probation for 18 months after her release and must write apology letters to the stores.
