A Haverfordwest teenager who admits charges of assault, drug possession and criminal damage, may face a prison sentence, magistrates warned last Tuesday.
Amy Rees, of Beaumont Court, Peregrine Close, admitted using threatening words or behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress on July 15th, and possessing 0.01 grams of cannabis on July 19th.
The 18-year-old also pleaded guilty to assault by beating on July 13th, and damaging a police car door to the value of £50.
During earlier court appearances, Rees had also pleaded guilty to charges of theft from Wilkinsons, Matthews menswear, and Morrisons, in Haverfordwest on July 24th, and criminal damage to a window at the Wetherspoon pub, in Llanelli, on July 25th.
Mark Layton, defending, said Rees had “re-integrated” into her family home, away from the influence of people who she associated with previously.
He said: “This may be an opportunity to make some positive progress at a time when things are spiralling out of control.”
He added that Rees’ current community order, which she received on July 5th, would help to get her “back on track”.
Magistrates adjourned the hearing until September 3rd, for an all-options probation report to be prepared.
Rees was released on bail, with conditions to live and sleep at a stated address in Haverfordwest, and not to leave that address unless accompanied by her mother or another named person, except when supervised by probation.
Rees was also not to contact three named people and not to enter licensed premises where alcohol is sold.
She was also prohibited from purchasing alcohol.
