TORONTO ó Kathy Ford made a brief appearance in court Monday before her case stemming from an old toothbrush shoplifting conviction was put over until July 24.
Mayor Rob Ford's sister dodged reporters as she left the courthouse, taking off in a luxury Jaguar sedan with her mother Diane Ford at the wheel.
"I'm not interested in talking to you," Kathy Ford ó who wore a chiffon leopard blouse and dark pants and carried a black leather handbag ó said outside of court when questioned by reporters. Her lawyer Dennis Morris was not in court Monday.
Ford was convicted of theft for stealing a quantity of toothbrushes from a Zellers store. She was ordered to complete 25 hours of community service by May 2013 ó which she claims she served.
However, Toronto cops allege she did not, and that she skipped out on a court date on Feb. 13 when she was to provide proof of the community service. A bench warrant was issued.
