The 43-year-old, of The Crescent, off Inkpen Road, was due to stand trial in March.

But Ms Balcombe did not show up and district judge Samuel Goozee convicted her in her absence.

At the latest hearing, on Tuesday, May 31, she was further convicted of failing to surrender to bail for her trial on that occasion.

Ms Balcombe was made subject to a 12-month community order and required to complete 12 days of mental health treatment with a psychologist.

In addition, she was ordered to pay £450 costs, plus a statutory victim services surcharge of £95.
