Lethbridge Woman Gets 17-Months for Robbery


LETHBRIDGE: A 20-year old Lethbridge woman is going to jail for the next 17-months.

Brittany Annette Twigg entered a guilty plea to robbery Wednesday in court, admitting that in July of last year she and another woman assaulted and robbed a 69-year old man in his north side home, after drinking and smoking crack cocaine with him. The court was told that the attack started when the victim and Twigg got into an arguement over the price of certain services.

The two women bound and choked the victim, and then hit him over the head with a frying pan, demanding that he tell them his pin number for his debit card. He eventually gave a number, which one of the women went and tested and discovered was wrong, at which point they held a knife to his throat until he gave the correct number.

The two then took off in the victim's van with his wallet.

The victim, who was later treated for minor injuries, was able to free himself and get a neighbours home where he called police.

Twigg's lawyer stated that the victim had done "disgusting and deplorable" things to her client, but acknowledged that it doesn't justify Twigg's actions.

While Twigg was given a 22-month sentence, she will get credit for five months already served in pre-trial custody.
