COURT LISTINGS: Community order for day-long crime spree at Nottingham Magistrates' Court and drink-drivers fined

This week's Nottingham Magistrates' Court listings have been released.

All cases from the district can be found below.


A 24-YEAR-OLD woman who went on a mini-crime spree lasting a day, which resulted in her arrest and that of her boyfriend in a car in Bingham, has been sentenced at court.

Charlotte Brown, of no fixed address, was arrested on The Banks as the passenger of a car that had been located and pursued by police.

She later admitted to Nottingham magistrates that she had been drunk and disorderly at the time of her arrest and had armed herself with a shard of glass.

However, the court was told at an earlier hearing that the risk was self-harm rather than to the arresting officers.

She also admitted making off without payment for fuel and a packet of crisps worth a combined £41.75 from a petrol station in East Bridgford earlier in that day.

In addition, she admitted stealing three bottles of wine from Tesco Express in Compton Acres ­— an offence for which she was also jointly charged with her boyfriend.

Brownwas sentenced to a community order with a rehabilitation requirement and must pay compensation to the petrol station and Tesco Express.

AN UNINSURED and unlicensed motorist, who was more than twice the legal drink-drive limit, was fined £400 at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court and banned from the roads for 17 months.

Kevin Mollison, 33, of Marshall VC Drive, Newark, admitted drink-driving with 73mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35.

He also admitted driving otherwise in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance, but received no further penalty.

Mollison must also pay £125 costs.

ANOTHER drink-driver will have to carry out 180 hours of community service after pleading guilty to being behind the wheel while just under three times the limit.

James Spray, 24, of Padleys Lane, Burton Joyce, gave a reading of 101mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

He had been involved in a collision and further admitted to driving without due care and attention, failing to provide his name and address at the scene or report the collision at a police station.

He was sentenced to a community order, which includes the unpaid work, and was banned from driving for 36 months at the same court and ordered to pay £150 in compensation.

A THIRD drink-driver was banned for 16 months by magistrates.

David Howson, 63, of Saucemere Drive, Newark, blew 45mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.

Howson was also fined £440 and told to pay £129 in costs after pleading guilty.

A WOMAN who assaulted another woman was fined £220 and told to pay compensation of £50.

Emma Edlin, 32, of Bancroft Road, Newark, who admitted committing the assault in the White Hart Yard, must also pay £117 costs.
