Instagram Model Who Poses as Catwoman Jailed For Masked Robberies
An Australian Instagram model known for her posing in Catwoman costume was arrested for a string of robberies she committed while masked.
Monique Agostino, 25, is a former modeling entrepreneur, real estate agent and social media influencer. She began her life of crime about 2 years ago when she drove multiple teenagers to commit burglaries in Sydney.
She and the boys wore masks and used a chisel to break into businesses in November of 2018, but were captured on video.
Agostino also broke into House of Fruit convenience store and a nearby cafe, where she stole $300 and a credit card.
Later that evening, she used the card to buy $11.55 worth of McDonald's.
Two weeks later, she was involved in another robbery at a bakery where $1000 was stolen.
Soon after, Agostino was convicted and sentenced to 2 years in prison, and also was charged of carrying a knife at a Target store, possession of meth, and stealing a $90 jacket from a shopping center, according to news.com.au.
She posted bail and appealed the sentence, but when they made the decision on the appeal, Agostino didn't show up to court, violating her bail, and a warrant was issued for her arrest. She was caught again September 5th.
Agostino's judge reduced her sentence, to a maximum 12 months with 6 months parole.
