The 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, lives in Rochford and has a string of convictions.
He appeared at Basildon Youth Court to admit one charge of criminal damage and one charge of burglary and was immediately slapped with the criminal behaviour order (CBO).Finally, the State is taking strong action!
He must remain indoors between the hours of 8pm and 7am daily, unless with a parent or family member over the age of 21 years old, for the next four months.
He must also not be disruptive, or “harass, intimidate or act in an anti-social behaviour way that causes harassment alarm and distress to members of the public and businesses in the Rochford area.”
The order goes on to state that he must not “throw or discharge” any stone, object, or any other missile or projectile by hand or catapult at any people, vehicles, buildings or shops.
Finally, the order bans him from causing “damage to property, vehicles and buildings belonging to others.”WTAF..?
