JP gaoled for store thefts

SYDNEY. Monday. –

A Justice of the Peace was sentenced to one month’s hard labour and fined £5 for shoplifting by Wollongong Court today.

The JP, an invalid pensioner, because of a bad heart, told the court that after four years of scraping and frustration something; had got into him.

He is Lawrence Thorald Gatehouse, 54, of Werong Street, Albion Park.

Detective Constable Welsh of Wollongong, told the court that Gatehouse had taken goods from Woolworths and a Nock and Kirby store at Warrawong. Gatehouse told Mr T. J. Towns, SM, that he had “an unblemished record.”

“T do not know what came over me,” he said.

“I feel so humiliated and ashamed that I would like to fall into a corner somewhere and lie.”

Mr Towns in passing sentence said, “I have to be logical. I have given women gaol sentences for shoplifting.”
