Louth: In the courts...


A round-up of some of this week’s court stories...

Carl Terrance Cox, 41, of Tennyson Road, Louth, has been charged with stealing a strimmer and hedge trimmer worth £1175. Cox did not attend the hearing at Skegness Magistrates’ Court on September 30, and the case was adjourned until October 28 to allow Cox to attend.

A 17-year-old Louth boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with having 7.48g of Class B drug Methylmethcathinone in his possession, when he appeared at Skegness Magistrates’ Court on September 30. He was remanded on unconditional bail until November 25.

Mark Steven Farrell, 48, of Harveys Lane, Louth, was given a community order and restraining order at Skegness Magistrates’ Court on September 30 after admitting to harassing a woman over a three weeks period in August. He pleaded guilty at a previous court hearing on September 9. He was given 80 hours of unpaid work, and ordered to attend a ‘Building Better Relationships’ programme. The restraining order, which prevents Farrell from contacting the woman or going within 250 yards of her home, will last until next September.
