A young mother has been jailed for robbing and burgling disabled victims.
Luminata Dumitru, 20, had recently left Romania for the UK with her one-year-old daughter to join her boyfriend and mother-in-law in Aintree, Liverpool.
Liverpool Crown Court heard on Thursday that Dumitru turned to crime to support her family after her relationship broke down.
CCTV footage showed her mugging a deaf man at an ATM in Liverpool city centre and raiding sheltered housing in Knotty Ash.
Dumitru admitted robbery and two counts of burglary.
Andrew McInnes, defending, said Dumitru had been in the country for around three months.
He said she came to the UK with her mother-in-law to join her boyfriend but "that partner is no longer around".
Mr McInnes said:
Judge Andrew Menary, QC, described the crimes as "very unpleasant" and "mean".
Dumitru sobbed in the dock as Judge Menary sentenced her to three years in a young offenders institution.
