Girlfriend 'laid down the law'

A DRUG-ABUSING robber was cured of his wayward habits when his disgusted girlfriend placed him under "house arrest", a court has heard.

Andrew Richard Denny, 26, of Clarendon Vale, pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in Hobart today to robbery.

Crown Prosecutor Jackie Hartnett told the court Denny was spotted acting suspiciously in the Harris Scarfe store in Hobart on February 4 last year.

When confronted by a security guard over a bulge in his jacket, he pushed the woman over and fled.

The guard gave chase and as Denny ran he dropped a $189 Remington electric shaver.

When arrested he told police the bulge was actually colouring-in books he had stolen from Chickenfeed.

Defence lawyer Greg Meyer told the court his client was on a disability support pension because of problems with literacy.

He said that after becoming involved in drugs and petty crime, Denny's partner had "laid down the law" and locked him inside the house to prevent him spending time with his criminal associates.

Denny had been drug and crime-free since, was working in his first job and the couple were expecting a child, he said.

Justice Stephen Estcourt will sentence Denny on May 1.
