COURT RE­PORT

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

But his co-op­er­a­tion ended when the in­ter­view did. After ask­ing to use the toi­let, Lacey forced open a win­dow and es­caped, fall­ing head-first six me­tres on to a bush be­low.

After his es­cape, Lacey asked a 14-year-old boy near Te Rau­paraha Arena for money, leav­ing with $10 and the boy’s hoodie. His free­dom, though, was short- lived – po­lice re­cap­tured him shortly after.

Judge Bill Hast­ings con­victed Lacey and re­manded him for sen­tenc­ing on Novem­ber 7.
