A Hamilton woman who performed sex acts on a cardboard cut-out at a city supermarket while intoxicated has received another dose of community work.

Marise Louise Marks was sentenced to 60 hours' community work in the Hamilton District Court today. The sentence is on top of an earlier sentence of 40 hours' community work Marks was given in August on a similar charge.

The court today heard that Marks, 41, was drunk inside a Countdown supermarket recently when she started "simulating a sex act with a cardboard cut-out".

She refused to stop and was still up to her hijinks when police turned up and arrested her.

It was then they found a pocketknife.

Marks was initially charged with disorderly behaviour and possession of an offensive weapon. The disorderly charge was withdrawn by police today.

Judge Glen Marshall said Marks had not even begun her earlier community service, despite it being three months old.

"Your commitment to sentence development is appalling."
