16 year old walks free from court after five-week crime spree

A 16-year-old walked free from court after assaulting five people, obstructing a police officer and racially abusing another in a five-week crime spree.

The teenager, who also committed four charges of criminal damage between June 6 and July 13, was not sent into custody when he appeared in court.

Magistrates sitting in the Youth Court in Leicester told the youngster, who cannot be named or legal reasons, that the list of offences was enough to put him away.

Graham Read, chairman of the bench, said: “This is very serious.

“People are getting hurt when you are throwing your fists around.

“These matters have crossed the custody threshold but we hope you will work with the Youth Offending Team and move forward.”
