Workington teenager denies “racially aggravated harassment” allegation

Carlisle Crown Court

A TEENAGER accused of making a racially aggravated comment in Workington is to stand trial later this year.

Olivia Glasson, 19, faces one charge arising out of an alleged incident which is said to have occurred outside a town nightclub on January 26 this year.

This alleges racially aggravated intentional harassment, alarm or distress, with one male named in the charge.

When Glasson appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (WED), she pleaded not guilty to the allegation.

As a result, she is now due to stand trial in front of a jury at the court in the week of August 12.

It is estimated this hearing will last around two days.

In the meantime, Glasson, of Warwick Place, Workington, was granted conditional bail by Judge James Adkin.
