Teenager Jailed After Assaulting PCSO

Wednesday May 22 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

A TEENAGER has been jailed for 18 weeks for hitting a police community support officer who turned up during the heat of a row about a mobile phone.

Leanne Cook, 18, used 'foul and extreme language' when Samantha Cox arrived to calm things down, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Chantel Lowery-Green, prosecuting, said every other word used by Cook started with 'f' and 'c'.

She said: "Ms Cox, who has been a PCSO for six years, told the defendant to walk away.

"Miss Cook started to walk away but turned around and punched Ms Cox who suffered pain and discomfort."

Mrs Lowery-Green added that Ms Cox had urged the court to give Cook a stiff sentence.

Julian Brook, defending, said Cook had gone to the home of someone she suspected of having her mobile phone which had been stolen.

He said Cook, of Grimethorpe, admitted assault and failing to surrender to bail, suffered from an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and this sometimes affected her behaviour.

Why the mention of ADHD? Does that give her an excuse? NO!
You can't go around punching people in the face no matter what excuse you can dream up. They know the difference between right and wrong! Wrong is wrong is wrong no matter how you look at it.
