THREE yobs who engaged in daytime violence which erupted in front of frightened children have been sentenced by a judge.
A drunken Shaun Beaty, 23, took the lead role in trouble which flared in the Denton Holme area of Carlisle on 14th November.
He threw his beer bottle at a vehicle and then punched an innocent bystander as she tried to intervene.
Beaty’s brother, Nathan Beaty, 22, and Kayley Doherty, 21, were also involved in an incident seen by a number of youngsters.
Carlisle Crown Court heard one child later said: “I am going to have a nightmare about the man with the bottle.”
The Beaty brothers, both of Stonehouse Park, Thursby, admitted affray, while Doherty, of Irthington, near Carlisle, pleaded guilty to a public order offence.
They were sentenced at the crown court today (FRI) by Judge Peter Davies.
Shaun Beaty was given a 14-month jail term. He also admitted an actual bodily harm assault he carried out in Carlisle last June.
Nathan Beaty was given a two-month suspended prison sentence. He must complete 100 hours’ unpaid work and a rehabilitation requirement.
Doherty received an 18-month community order and 150 hours of unpaid work.
