POLICE are trying to curb the anti-social behaviour of a teenage tearaway who appeared in court this morning.
The 13-year-old, from Lockwood, had pleaded guilty to a charge of handling stolen goods at a hearing in Huddersfield Youth Court on July 4.
Today, sentencing was adjourned until Wednesday, August 27 and the boy was bailed.
The slight youngster appeared in court with his father.
Once he is sentenced, police and Kirklees Council officers will apply for an Anti-social Behaviour Order.
ASBOs are usually made in a separate civil application after a case has finished.
The ASBO, which the authorities want to impose for five years, will stop the youngster from participating in threatening or abusive behaviour, taking a vehicle without the owner's consent, or taking anything belonging to another person.
He would face prosecution if he breached the order.
