A TEENAGER has appeared in court after a Taser stun gun was found in his home.
Adam Hamilton, of Stuart Place, Bradley, was before Kirklees magistrates yesterday.
He admitted possession of a weapon designed to discharge electricity.
The 18-year-old also admitted breaching his bail conditions.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said that on November 29 police executed a search warrant on the teen’s house.
They discovered the weapon on a window sill.
Hamilton pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing and released on conditional bail.
The conditions were residence and an electronically-monitored curfew between 7pm and 6am.
But Hamilton was arrested after going out with a friend in the early hours of the morning.
He was arrested just hours before he was due in court to be sentenced for the original offence.
Jonathan Slawinski, mitigating, told magistrates that his client was due to be sentenced at Leeds Crown Court on January 22 for theft and assault.
He asked magistrates to send the case to the crown court so that all matters can be dealt with together.
The bench agreed and Hamilton was released on conditional bail.
