A one-legged thief already behind bars for a $ 20,000 armed robbery giggled when he came to court for stealing a sex toy and lubricants.
Jack Quinlivan, 28, was convicted in the Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court for stealing a vibrator, climax stimulating gel and delay gel from Chemist Warehouse in Chadstone, Melbourne, in November 2018.
The lower leg amputee said he had ‘borrowed’ the sex toy and lube and forgot to pay because of his post-traumatic stress disorder, the Monash leader reported.
The court heard that Quinlivan was waiting for a prescription to be filled out when he took the items and left the pharmacy without paying.

Magistrate Victorian Campbell fined Quinlivan $ 100 and ordered him to pay $ 84.40 in fees.
A conviction was also registered.
“He is a relatively young man who has had significant problems from birth, his entire upbringing was dysfunctional,” she said.
“Hopefully he can finish that fine while he’s in custody.”
The court heard that Quinlivan had a criminal past riddled with serious burglary crimes.
He has at least nine months left on his sentence after pleading guilty to the Holdsworth Bros. Jewelers in Eastland in 2019.
Quinlivan stole $ 20,000 worth of jewelry after threatening staff with a hammer and claiming to have a gun.
The amputee fled through a security door and hailed a taxi before being arrested two days later.
He was sentenced by the County Court to up to four years and one month in prison for the robbery, with a minimum of 25 months to be served.
