The court heard she was late for an appointment with probation to prepare a report on her background.

Magistrates released her on bail until January 21 to give her a chance to meet a probation officer.

Magistrates committed her case to Plymouth Crown Court on February 18.
She was released on condition she lives with her mother in Plymstock.
