On 15/04/2018 at Harlow had with you, without good reason or lawful authority, in a public place Waterhouse Moor, Harlow an article which had a blade or was sharply pointed, namely Two Black Handled Knives with three and a half inch blades.
On 16/05/2018 at Harlow, without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, had with you in a public place, namely TILLWICK ROAD, an offensive weapon, namely a small fixed blade knife
The youth was made subject to a youth rehabilitation order and fined £20.00
20 quid eh,that will teach him.
You're right jarrett. That'll make them think twice. Are our magistrates really up to speed, or on it ?
And there is the problem. £20 is really such a deterrent little wonder young people are no longer afraid to carry offence weapons or commit crimes.
