New order for Asbo boy

By Marcus Dysch, May 27, 2009

A boy has been sentenced to community service for breaching an antisocial behaviour order imposed after he verbally abused Jewish schoolchildren.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given a referral order in January after admitting charges of racially aggravated harassment and common assault.

Magistrates were told that he had approached pupils from JFS as they travelled home on a 183 bus through north west London. The youth threatened to stab them and shouted “Jewish scum” during the incident last November.

Officers arrested him again at a bus stop in West Hendon on April 16.

He pleaded guilty to one charge of breaching an Asbo at Hendon Magistrates’ Court on Friday last week and was ordered to serve a 40-hour community punishment order.

Barnet Police PC Joanne Krelle said: “He has consistently failed to recognise that his behaviour is totally unacceptable and, if he continues to breach his Asbo, he risks being given a custodial sentence.”
