“Bonnie” Back In Philadelphia Court After Violating Probation
By Tony Hanson
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia’s own Bonnie, of Bonnie and Clyde ID theft fame, is scheduled to make a federal court appearance today in connection with new crimes she committed in California.
Jocelyn Kirsch and Edward Anderton, aka “Bonnie and Clyde,” stole from friends and neighbors to pay for a lavish jetsetting lifestyle. The crimes and racy photos memorializing their activities made national, and even international news.
Anderton was sentenced to four years in prison, while Kirsch got five years. But shortly after her release, she stole again.
Authorities say Kirsch admitted stealing a Tory Burch clutch from Nordstrom’s, as well as other items in California in 2012. Her conviction in that case is a violation of probation in her Philadelphia case, and she will make an initial appearance today — and is scheduled for a revocation of supervised release hearing next week.
When she was sentenced in 2008 in Philadelphia, Kirsch told the court in a letter the regret runs bone deep and she will never repeat this mistake again.
