RE: What? Japanese marathoner avoids prison for shoplifting charge after claiming running related bulimia caused her to do it
Well… I’m not a phycologist, so I don’t know about the relation between shoplifting and bulimia, but I’m sure the defence must have provided a technical report from a recognized expert explaining why they reached that conclusion. Even if they didn’t, I think it’s plausible to believe and accept that there are many ramifications deriving from that condition that could lead to unforeseen consequences, such as shoplifting. Anyway, I’m glad she didn’t have to go to jail for a year because of 23 dollars’ worth of goods!
