Just read a report on a individual with 113 previous convictions, who was convicted of stealing pot of noodles in front of five gardai. I was recently chatting to a solictor who told me that this type of individual would have cost the taxpayer millions, if you include all the services that are provided in convicting such a person. Is it possible to get a total cost on what an individual has cost the taxpayer through the criminal justice system? If the public was aware of what each of these serial offenders cost yearly there would be outcry. Can you imagine what the reaction would be if it was reported that along with the 113 previous convictions, this individual has cost the State 1 million euros???
