Student breached court order to attend lectures

A UNIVERSITY student breached a court order because her lectures timetable had changed.

A UNIVERSITY student breached a court order because her lectures timetable had changed.

Cheryl Neugent was ordered to complete unpaid work as part of a community order.

The order was imposed by Wakefield magistrates as punishment for Neugent driving while disqualified.

However, Huddersfield magistrates were told that the 22-year-old breached his order.

The bench heard that the University of Huddersfield student did this by failing to turn up for a work appointment.

Charles Ainley, defending, said that his client has started the second year of her degree in business management.

He said that she was unable to attend the appointment because her timetable had changed, meaning that she had to be at lectures on that day.

Mr Ainley told magistrates that Neugent now has Thursdays and Fridays free from lectures for unpaid work.

Magistrates added an extra six hours of unpaid work to the order for the breach.
