A Swedish Supreme Court judge has been convicted of shoplifting a Christmas ham and meatballs, prosecutors said.
The 67-year-old judge was fined 50,000 kroner (€4,800) when she was caught red-handed in a grocery shop in central Stockholm shortly before Christmas.
In addition to the ham and meatballs -- a traditional Swedish New Year's Eve dish -- she had reportedly tried to steal sausages and cheese, hidden in a woven shopping bag.
“I have issued a fine regarding the crime petty theft, previously known as shoplifting,” the chief public prosecutor, Per Nichols, told AFP.
The judge resigned from her post in February - when press reports first emerged about the investigation - after a long and distinguished career.
The 67-year-old had spent two decades at Sweden's Supreme Court, where only 16 judges sit.
