FORMER Newstead Wood and St Olave's pupil Laura Johnson, who was jailed last May for her role in the riots, has reportedly been released from jail.

News Shopper has received reports the daughter of millionaire parents has finished her sentence for crimes which took place on August 8, 2011 when people looted and burned London and other cities.

The 21-year-old former University of Exeter student was found guilty of burgling Comet, in Bugsby’s Way, Charlton, at Inner London Crown Court in April 2012.

Johnson, of Sheepcote Lane, Orpington was also convicted of handling stolen goods - a TV looted from Currys in Stonelake Retail Park, Charlton and was sentenced to two years imprisonment for each offence, to run concurrently.

During Johnson’s trial jurors were told she was seen laughing and joking with the looters she was driving around during the riots.

Electrical items, including televisions, and cigarettes and alcohol, were found in her car.

Her parents, Robert and Lindsay Johnson, run a direct marketing company, Avongate Ltd, from their house in Sheepcote Lane.
