Woman broke ASBO by beg­ging for cash

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
