Why Was She Jailed?

The former Instagram model and a single mother found herself on the wrong side of the law after being charged over a string of robberies in Sydney shops and cafes. She first found herself in trouble in 2018, when she drove teenage male youths to several burglaries in Sydney’s north shore. The boys and Agostino wore weird masks as they broke into various properties, including a convenience store, a pizza joint, and a nearby cafe. She was sentenced to 12 months behind bars and eventually got released on bail after appealing her sentence’s severity.

Agostino often posed in racy outfits for her fans on her Instagram handle before foraying into a life of crime. The court convicted her of breaking into a cafe and stealing a credit card, which she later used to buy food. She was also involved in a break-in at a Sydney bakery, where she stole $1000. Furthermore, she acted as a getaway driver for youth who robbed an Italian Restaurant and tried to break into multiple shops. The CCTV caught them donning black masks and breaking into the Pound of Pizza restaurant at Killarney Heights on November 6. The police pressed charges against her of stealing a $90 jacket from Supre, possessing a knife and drugs (meth and diazepam) inside a Target outlet.
