Sentencing date set for Barrow go-kart youth
Last updated at 10:08, Tuesday, 22 July 2014
A TEENAGE yob from Barrow who helped steal and trash three go-karts will learn his fate next month.
The 17-year-old boy, who can’t be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to burglary when he appeared court last week.
In a hearing at Furness Youth Court on Friday magistrates stood the case down for a full pre-sentence report to be prepared.
Along with Alexander Richard Carter, 18, of Brathay Crescent, Barrow, and Jason Liam White, 20, of Foxfield, the 17-year-old admitted stealing the karts from Cumbria Karting, in James Freel Close, Barrow, before driving along Channelside and across Jubilee Bridge where they were spotted by police.
One of the karts was found burnt out and the other two were left severely damaged with a total bill said to be around £12,200, according to court papers.
Sensors in the building showed karts had been moved just after 10pm and they were spotted by police two hours later.
The trio heard at their initial hearing that they could face jail time for the offence.
During the last hearing at Furness Magistrates’ Court, Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said: “At 12.30am an officer was driving along the Promenade, on Walney, and sees the defendants in black clothing with two karts.
“One of them runs off and the other two drive off at speed. The karts were last seen in Vickerstown. One was smashed up, one was on fire and another has also been found and can’t be used.”
The teenager is due to be sentenced in Furness Youth Court on August 8.
Carter and White are due to be sentenced in Preston Crown Court on the same date.
All three were released on conditional bail and ordered not to contact Jonathan Chapman, owner of Cumbria Karting, and not to enter James Freel Close.
