The mother of Liam Debono, the teenager who ran over PS Simon Schembri in a notorious hit-and-run in Luqa last year, has been sentenced to two years in prison for stealing money from petrol stations.
Charlotte Zammit, 37, robbed six petrol stations in Paola, Żabbar, Attard, Qormi, St Paul’s Bay and Mellieħa on different nights between May and July.
Magistrate Neville Camilleri advised that she also follow a drug rehabilitation programme, given that she was a recidivist and indications showed that she may have stolen to fund her addiction.
She had pleaded guilty to the charges.
Her case comes a month after her son Liam Debono was sentenced to five years in jail and fined €60,000 for driving without a license while out on bail.
He is still facing charges of attempted murder for having run over PS Simon Schembri, an incident that resulted in the police sergeant needing to amputate his arm.
