Mini-lout’s summer mayhem
A 12-YEAR-OLD boy has been sentenced for 12 crimes – in a shocking example of yobbish youth Britain.
Wigan Youth Court heard the mini-lout admitted three counts of harassing neighbours in the town, using threatening and abusive behaviour.
The schoolboy also admitted assault by beating, three counts of criminal damage by smashing windows and one of attempted criminal damage, plus theft and breaching a youth offender panel order last summer.
He was found guilty by trial of two further harassment counts that he had denied.
The youngster, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, committed the offences over the space of a few weeks.
Justices issued a criminal behaviour order banning him from a local retail park unless accompanied by an adult, and being with another youth outside school hours.
They also imposed a youth rehabilitation order.
