In the courts this week...
CLARIFICATION: CRAIG JOSEPH CHAPPELL
In last week’s edition of the Louth Leader (April 9) we published an article titled ‘Man escapes jail term after hammer attack’ which referred to the sentencing of Craig Joseph Chappell, 27, of Keddington Road, Louth. Although Chappell was initially charged with assault and carrying an offensive weapon, the latter charge was dropped in court before sentencing took place. Chappell was given a community order and must carry out 100 hours of unpaid work We are happy to make this clear.
