THREE teenagers have been ordered to pay £50 compensation following incidents of assault and criminal damage in Swallownest and Aston.
The boys, all from Aston, who cannot be named for legal reasons, all appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court this week.
One 17-year-old was given a two-year conditional discharge and a restraining order and was ordered to pay £50 compensation for each count of assault and criminal damage to a vehicle.
His parent or guardian was also ordered to pay £200 costs.
Another 17-year-old was given a restraining order and ordered to pay £50 compensation for criminal damage.
He was also given a youth rehabilitation order and his parent or guardian was ordered to pay £150.
A 14-year-old was given a restraining order and ordered to pay £50 compensation, as well as being given a youth rehabilitation order.
Insp Caroline Bakewell said: “These court outcomes are thanks to the victim coming forward and having confidence in the police to take positive action.
“We hope that by putting intervention measures in place that it will change the attitudes of the young people involved and encourage them away from further criminal behaviour.
“We will continue our work in the area to offer reassurance to the community and prosecute anyone committing crime or antisocial behaviour.”
