A British woman who decided to add a little style to her court-ordered electronic monitoring tag has ended up with a $221 fine.
Rebecca Gallanagh from the town of Tamworth, near Birmingham, was convicted of fighting outside a nightclub in November, and was fitted with the tag to ensure she didn’t breach a 9pm — 7am curfew imposed by the court, reports the Tamworth Herald.
With the holiday party season just around the corner, the style-savvy former bar worker spelled out her initials on the tag’s strap using fake diamonds and nail glue.
But when she moved home in December she had to be fitted with a new tag. That was when workers from Serco Home Affairs, the company that fits the tags, saw the embellishments and reported her to the authorities, writes the Herald.
