[T]WO young men from Kendal were warned they could receive custodial sentences for robbing a teenager of his mobile phone.
Christopher Clement, 19, and Jack Oliver Dawson, 22, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court yesterday (FRI).
During a short hearing before Judge Peter Davies, the pair admitted a charge of robbery. This follows an incident involving a 17-year-old victim on 19th April.
No details about the incident were outlined. The court heard there was a basis for Dawson’s guilty plea, although this had yet to be committed to writing.
It is anticipated the Crown Prosecution Service will consider his basis in due course.
In the meantime Judge Davies asked for background reports to be prepared on each of the men. He adjourned the case until 13th December, when both are due to be sentenced at the crown court for their respective roles in the crime.
Clement, of Auction Close, and Dawson, of Kirkland View, both Kendal, were remanded on conditional bail.
But Judge Davies told them: “You can’t take from that that there won’t be a custodial sentence at the end of it. All options are open.”
