5 years for NZ smash and grab robber Christensen

Christensen's lawyer said the poor baby suffered from a “warped unreality” that showed his inability to distinguish between right and wrong.
Bayley James Christensen, 20, was involved in 4 robberies that came to light when cops found pictures on his phone of him with stacks of cash and messages of him boasting about his stolen loot. He appeared at the Christchurch District Court and sat in the dock smirking with his supporters, some of whom sniggered as one of his victims retold the terrifying story of crooks smashing through her store. The victim said she couldn’t find the words to describe the helplessness she felt when the youths burst in, masked and yelling threats while smashing the counter glass with hammers.
