Teenager In 'Moment Of Madness' After Crashing Woman's Car

Friday October 11 2013


Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court


AN uninsured teenager caused £3,587 of damage by crashing a woman's car - just a few hours after meeting her.

Anthony Thomas, 19, had gone back to the woman's home but was unsure where in Barnsley it was, said Jayne Ormrod, prosecuting.

Mrs Ormrod said Thomas, of Market Street, Cudworth, took the keys to the woman's Toyota after she went to bed. She said he crashed the car into a wall and gate causing substantial damage.

Philip Stables, defending, said; "Mr Thomas took the car in a moment of madness. He met the woman in the town and went back to her house."

District Judge John Foster, who adjourned the case until October 17 for a pre-sentence report, said: "You took advantage of your short-term friendship of this woman."

Thomas, who was granted unconditional bail, admitted aggravated vehicle taking, damage, driving otherwise in accordance with a licence and having no insurance.

Barnsley does seem to have more than it's fair share of low lives. Hopefully the judge will make an example of the idiot. Now get ready for those that will defend his actions.

No offence to the women but I don't leave my car keys out for no1, and as for mr Thomas u can't go round taking cars, some people save and work along time for the car they want, I hope u r ashamed but most of all u have learned from ur actions and this makes u a better person!

Why would you invite him back after a few hours and go to bed and leave him loitering ? I might give someone a shout off street and go to bed let them take what they want, TOTAL IDIOT!!!!

its serves her right for inviting a man back who she knows nothing about ,it could have been alot worse you dont invite strangers back to your home

Jesus wept - the views on this thread. So she had a one night stand? I agree she should have been on her guard more. Have any of you ever made a mistake and got yourself in a situation?

But God, folks on this thread judge so much. I can imagine they are the same folk who thinks that when a women gets raped 'she asked for it'

@mark - If there was an award for the thickest WABer (and by heck there would be some contenders) you would win it hands down love.
