MAGISTRATES have refused to impose an ASBO on a 16-year-old youth who admitted burgling a pensioner's home in Soham.
They were told he had committed a string of other misdemeanours, including climbing on the roof of Soham Village College and throwing earth at passing cars, but decided an ASBO was not necessary.
Prosecutor Nick Davies told Ely youth court the boy had gone to premises in Frank Bridges Close with a 13-year-old, who also admitted the burglary, stealing £900. Mitigating, Graham Russell said the 16-year-old had shown remorse, and had no desire to commit a burglary.
"He was not the principal driver of this offence," he added.
