A SoCal woman plead guilty to charges of burglary, grand theft and identity theft. She committed these crimes in order to obtain a $12,000 line of credit for liposuction and breast implants in September of 2008.
The 30 year old woman received 180 days in jail and three years probation. She was also ordered to pay restitution but the amount wasn’t made clear according to the article.
What does this say about our society when women are committing grand theft level crimes in order to obtain plastic surgery? Was this a greed issue? Was it driven by extremely low self esteem issues? Is the media driving women to the point that they feel they have to commit crimes in order to have that perfect body?
