Woman broke ASBO by begging for cash
A WOMAN banned from begging for money has admitted breaching an ASBO.
Susan Mary Warrington, 54, was given the five year ASBO by Macclesfield magistrates court on October 16 last year. But since then she has admitted breaching the order three times.
In March magistrates ordered Warrington to wear an electronic tag for 10 weeks and banned her leaving her house between 5pm and 5am.
This was after she admitted asking members of the public for money on January 31 and cold calling residents in Elizabeth House on Swettenham Street on the same day.
But within days of being sentenced she was caught begging for money from a member of the public.
Warrington, of Fir Court, Kennedy Avenue, Macclesfield, had denied the offence but changed her plea on the day of the trial at Macclesfield magistrates court on June 2. She will now be sentenced at the same court on August 4.
The terms of the ASBO ban Warrington from acting in a way that is abusive, offensive or threatening in a public place; and persuading, encouraging, coercing or requesting money from any individual in return for goods.
