A TEENAGER has been remanded in custody after repeatedly breaching his bail conditions.
The 15-year-old, who cannot be named, was before Huddersfield magistrates yesterday.
He is due to be sentenced after pleading guilty to robbery.
His bail conditions were residence and a curfew between the hours of 7pm and 7am.
However, magistrates were told that the teen had breached these conditions three times.
On the latest occasion he left the family home through the living room window.
When he failed to arrive home by 7.30pm, his father called police.
Magistrates were told that the teenager is now no longer welcome at the house and currently has nowhere to live.
His solicitor, Charles Ainley, said that this meant he was unable to apply for bail for his client.
He said: “It puts me in an impossible position because I can’t apply for bail.
“The recommendation is that he is remanded to a secure children’s establishment.”
Magistrates said that they had no option but to remand the teen until he is sentenced.
This will take place in the youth court sitting at Dewsbury Magistrates’ Court on Monday, January 23.
