Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

PREST was to ap­pear be­fore Ash­ford Mag­is­trates’ Court on Au­gust 20 last year, fol­low­ing the as­sault on Miss Evans, but left be­fore the case was called. He was ar­rested and re­manded in cus­tody be­fore re­turn­ing to the mag­is­trates on Au­gust 28. He was freed on bail, with con­di­tions ban­ning him from Ash­ford, ex­cept to see his so­lic­i­tor or doc­tor. Judge Law­son re­marked that Prest had “fooled” the mag­is­trates into re­leas­ing him from cus­tody.
