Girl, 14, who breached Asbo sent to custody

A 14-YEAR-OLD girl has been sent to custody for breaching her anti-social behaviour order.
Jacqueline Smith was sentenced to three months’ detention, followed by three months on licence, after admitting a series of ASBO breaches.
The teenager was made the subject of an ASBO on August 14 last year for a period of two years.
The ASBO bans her from possessing alcohol in a public place and being under the influence of alcohol in a public place.
The order also prohibits her from being with five named youths in any street or open public place, except when in organised education or leisure activities under the supervision of a responsible adult with a duty of care towards her.
Yesterday Smith, of Abbotsmead Approach, Barrow, appeared at Furness and District Youth Court where District Judge Gerald Chalk sent her tocustody.
Prosecutor, Mrs Lesley Duhig, told the court about the breaches which all occurred between March and May.
The breaches included Smith being out with a male youth she is banned from being with.
Miss Duhig said one breach took place on March 16 when the defendant was stopped by a police officer in Greengate Street, Barrow, and was slurring her words and had the smell of alcohol on her breath.
The court heard the teenager was arrested for breaching her order when police saw her in possession of alcohol in the Queen Street area of Dalton on April 30.
Before sentencing, Mr Steven Evans, representing Smith, said the defendant had entered guilty pleas and she did not want to go into custody.
Mr Evans said: “She does realise now she is right on the cusp.”
But District Judge Chalk said: “Shouldn’t she have realised that when the case was adjourned for reports?”
