A former member of the rap group So Solid Crew has 432,000 seconds to go before he has worked off his debt for attacking his teenage girlfriend.Hmm, that name rings a bell…
Darren Weir, 32, known as Skat D in the group which made the hit song 21 Seconds, has been ordered to do 120 hours (432,000 seconds) unpaid work after hitting the 17-year-old girl in the face.
Ah, of course!
A member of UK garage collective the So Solid Crew has been fined £1,500 by a court for assaulting a 15-year-old schoolgirl fan.Oh, just lovely.
Darren James Weir, 22, of Pimlico, central London, admitted breaking the girl's jaw on 27 December last Christmas after a concert by the group in Cardiff.
The judge said he was not handing down a jail sentence in order to preserve Weir's career prospects.Hmm, was that wise? Just how are those prospects these days?
Michael Burdett, representing Weir, said he left So Solid Crew in 2004 and is now heavily in debt with his bank and receiving income support. Mr Burdett told the court Weir and his victim ended their relationship after he attacked her.*chuckle*
