A woman with 256 previous convictions is this week back behind bars after biting three members of staff at a Suffolk supermarket along with two others sentenced this week.
Chantelle Kerry,36, of Samuel Court, Ipswich, admitted three offences of shoplifting, three offences of assault causing actual bodily harm, and one offence of common assault. She also admitted being in breach of a conditional discharge before being jailed for 21 months,
Judge Martyn Levett said she had bitten the security guard at Tesco’s at Copdock, near Ipswich, on the hand for 15 seconds and had then bitten a female member of staff on the finger.
A customer assistant who went to the aid of the security guard was bitten on the breast for about 45 seconds by Kerry and described it as one of the most painful things that had ever happened to her.
The court heard that Kerry had been in an abusive relationship and had committed the offences to fund her drug habit. In court, her solicitor reassured the victims that she does not have AIDS.
