A TEENAGER who admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour has been fined.
Jordan Cornforth, of Eggleston View, Darlington, repeatedly interrupted the hearing at Darlington Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday, March 13) as District Judge Kristina Harrison sentenced him for the offence, which happened in Darlington on February 14.
However after being threatened with arrest for contempt of court, the 19-year-old apologised.
Judge Harrison ordered him to pay a £73 fine and a £20 victim surcharge
