Belizean, Nahyelie Maria Burn banned from Walmart?

Nahyelie Maria Burn

A Belizean student in Canada has avoided deportation even though she was found guilty of a credit card spree with cards belonging to other persons. Twenty-six year old Nahyelie Maria Burn committed the crime while she was a student at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University in Corner Brook City.  From 2011 to 2012, she stole credit cards from roommates, former co-workers at the campus library and from a student for whom she was assigned as a student advisor. She used their credit cards to buy merchandise from Forever twenty-one and to make phone payments to Virgin Mobile. In addition to racking up a bill for about eighteen thousand Belize dollars, she was also charged with shoplifting clothes from a Wal-Mart store. The prosecutor recommended that the Judge sentence her from nine to twelve months of house arrest, while her defense attorney asked for a shorter conditional sentence. According to Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, a foreign national could face deportation if charged with a crime that carried a maximum penalty of ten years, was sentenced to an actual sentence of six months incarceration or more. Burn was also charged with numerous offences not considered to be arising from one incident. Burn’s attorney said she was a compulsive shopper whose schemes were rather naive. After taking some time to consider the additional submissions from both sides, Judge Howe decided to grant Burn an absolute discharge on the shoplifting charge and conditional discharges for the remaining twenty-three offences. She is subject to eighteen months of probation, during which she cannot have contact with any of her victims, must stay away from Wal-Mart and must not conduct any transactions with the Forever twenty-one website.

    Being poor doesn’t give you an excuse to steal. Doubt they are poor. Maybe spoilt and like things the easy way and like to show and live beyond their means

    There are a lot of things poorer than being without money. And this is one example! In fact, I think she obviously had a little too much money too early.

    Just wondering how many more people will she be taking advantage off until she get some justice applied against her for her
    Actions and rotten behavior against trusting naive people that will fall her heads over toes trying to help her out with her heartBreaking stories until she gives you the sword right on your back where it hurts the most. Waiting for justice to be served, patience patience its a virtue89
