We decided on a period of unpaid work in the community along with a supervision order.
Oh dear, what a story of woe... she had arthritis (both types) (sic), "heart problems", diabetes, vertigo and an unspecified "female problem". That sort of put the lid on getting her to do any unpaid work. More suitable, we thought, for the knackers yard.
We went onto the period of supervision and she was told to attend all appointments promptly or else she would find herself back in Court.
She looked very worried and asked if there was any leeway with appointment times. When asked why, she told us that she invariably worked overtime and didn't want to lose the time-and-a-half rate by having to take time off work during the day to attend appointments. She was usually free by 7:30 pm though, if that would help.
EDIT I forgot to add... she is a fork lift driver / loader.
OK... let's start again
