TWO Almondbury teenagers have been told to stay out of trouble or face being locked up for their part in an early-hours street brawl.
A judge at Bradford Crown Court was yesterday shown CCTV footage of the disturbance on John William Street last August which resulted in two men being attacked.
One victim Alan Beadsworth had to take several days off work after he suffered injuries including a black eye and a sore jaw while his friend Sean Harvey needed six stitches in a cut to his face.
Jez McKernan, 19, of Eastlands, and 18-year-old Shane Mahmud, of Rockley Close, both admitted assaulting the two men, but Recorder Henry Prosser decided to defer sentence on the pair until November.
A third teenager Jamie Hever, 19, of Southfield Road, Almondbury, was sentenced to 39 weeks detention, suspended for a year, and ordered to do 150 hours unpaid work for the community.
Hever, who had no previous convictions, admitted assaulting Mr Beadsworth that night.
The court heard that both McKernan and Mahmud had previous convictions, but they had not been in any more trouble since last August.
Recorder Prosser told the pair that he was deferring sentence on them to see if they could continue to keep out of trouble.
“At your age that’s an important matter,” said the judge.
He told the teenagers that if they managed to stay out of trouble they would receive suspended sentences, but if they didn’t they could expect a sentence of custody.
