Hipson, whose address was given in court papers as Moir Drive in Aberdeen, pled guilty to a charge of shoplifting.
Defence agent Alex Burn asked for sentence to be deferred for reports, adding: “She has had significant alcohol difficulties in the past.
“There appears to have been a relapse. She’s still, unfortunately, struggling with her demons.”
Sheriff Andrew Miller deferred sentence until next month for a social work report to be prepared.
