Our thanks to Bryn for this. An extract:
Recorder Boothby dismissed calls to withhold a custodial sentence and condemned both defendants.
He said: “Here you are preying on a 70-year-old man and bringing unsavoury characters into his house.
“Not content with the warning from the eviction, you then bully another vulnerable person for your useless lifestyle.
“I am not distinguishing between the two of you and I am afraid [J4MB emphasis – WHY was Recorder Boothby ‘afraid’?] you must go to prison.”
