Jury Hears of Scott's Prior Thefts
The latest dispatches from the Raymond Scott trial: so far this week jurors have gotten to hear of Scott's long record of shoplifting and attempted theft. He's got more than a dozen convictions under his belt, dating back to the early 1990s. Among the things he's swiped: whiskey and brandy, a smoke alarm, a crystal vase and clock, £150 of figurines, two books from a Waterstone's (the latter two thefts occurred while out he was out on bail for the Durham folio charges), &c. &c.
