A prostitute who left a lipstick message to tell her client that she had borrowed his car has been jailed.

On January 10 Sharon Wells spent the night with a man at the Leeds Road hotel. He awoke the next morning to see her getting into his Astra and driving off.

A message left in lipstick on the bathroom mirror read: “I’ve borrowed your car, won’t be long – about 30 minutes.” The 42-year-old had taken the vehicle to go and collect her next drugs fix.

The vehicle was later stopped on Hillhouse Lane by an officer who recognised Sharon. She was over the limit and confessed that she’d drunk a bottle of wine earlier.

She pleaded guilty to taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, driving without a licence or insurance, drink-driving and possession of cannabis. She also admitted to a string of shop thefts and racially- aggravated threatening behaviour.


Sharon was jailed for four months and banned her from driving for 12 months and eight weeks.
