A TEENAGER has admitted assaulting her mother while behaving violently at the family’s Workington home.
Nineteen-year-old Ellie Sinead Robertson pleaded guilty to four offences when she appeared at Carlisle Crown Court this morning (THURS).
Robertson admitted assaulting her mother Kerry Fulton, causing her actual bodily harm. The teenager also admitted the unlawful possession of a knife in a public place, causing criminal damage to the living room window of her mother’s home, and assaulting a female police constable, who was spat upon.
All of the offences were committed by the teenager during incidents which occurred in and around the Grasmere Avenue property on the evening of Saturday, April 4 this year.
The case was adjourned by Judge Nicholas Barker at the request of Robertson’s lawyer, Marion Weir, who asked for the preparation of background reports by a probation officer and psychiatrist.
“I will look at those reports, as indeed will Miss Weir and the prosecution, and we will see what the right sentence is,” Judge Barker told the teen as he adjourned the case.
Robertson, of Grasmere Avenue, Workington, is due to be sentenced at the crown court on June 4. In the meantime she was remanded in custody by the judge.
