A Kleptomaniac Shares Their Story


A kleptomaniac talks about their life and what turned them around:

"A tall, stoic-looking security guard dumps the contents of a blue knapsack onto a metal table. There are two textbooks, a handful of pens, a red bra, a knitted sweater, and a collection of keychains. All of the items, including the knapsack, are stolen.

Across the table sits 21-year-old Brittney Matheson*, staring wide-eyed at the items she has stolen.

Matheson, a psychology student at Ryerson University, is quiet while the security guard begins listing the consequences of having a criminal record. Among them being the most detrimental to Matheson’s plans of becoming an international photographer—she will no longer be able to leave the country.
