Menopause Blamed for Crime Spree

A woman in the United Kingdom blamed menopause as the reason behind her stealing thousands of dollars from elderly residents.

The 51-year-old post office assistant told police she didn’t need the money and the only reason that could be found for her dishonesty was she was going through menopause.

She was quoted as saying, “Whenever I do it, I feel guilty. Still I do it. I don’t know why. I was telling God as well.”

This menopause crime mama was convicted of stealing from four victims between the ages of 65 and 94 from January 2007 to May 2008.  Instead of getting some jail time, the judge decided to show her mercy by ordering her to do 240 hours of unpaid work and pay court costs.

Question:  Did the judge let her off too lightly?

  1. Well, I can’t speak for the judge but I know that the hormonal roller coaster is no easy trip. Maybe the defendant was flashing hot at the time of sentencing and the court was afraid to do anything but let her off with a slap on the wrist!

  2. I remember being surprised at how “grumpy” and irrational meno made me toward the end of it (thank goodness over with by 48, 9 years now!).

    I guess depending upon this woman’s past history, if she has never done anything wrong before, getting community service might not be such a bad thing…saves the state/county jail-time costs, and saves money that would be spent to pay someone to do the work she’d be doing. Now if she does it again…that’s another story!
