Orange woman admits to being on drugs during robbery

A 46-year-old woman has appeared in Orange Local Court, after admitting she was on a mixture of heavy drugs when she robbed a man outside his home, back in 2012. 

Kathleen Therea Smith followed a man home in Orange, where she assaulted and robbed him of $1500 whilst he unpacked groceries from his car.

She took to the stand in Orange local court yesterday, where she admitted to being on a lethal combination of heroin, rivotril, and marijuana at the time.

Smith has told the court she had no recollection of what she did with the stolen cash, following the assault.

Judge Norrish says the accused’s drug history over the years is a troubled one, but her efforts are unimpressive.

Smith has apologised to the victim, who was not present in court.
