A HARLOW mum who robbed a disabled man at knifepoint to get cash for drugs has had her sentence slashed by senior judges reports Essex Live.
Alice Tina Smith, from Harlow, forced her way into the stroke victim’s home in September last year, demanding cash.
Two weeks later Smith ambushed a 78-year-old man as he left a Harlow post office with nearly £500 in pension money.
Smith, of Mallows Green, was jailed for five and a half years at Chelmsford Crown Court in June after admitting burglary, robbery and three counts of assault.
But the 31-year-old’s case reached the Appeal Court as she successfully challenged her punishment.
Sitting with Lord Justice Fulford and Mr Justice Wyn Williams, he reduced her sentence to four years.
