YOU’RE OUT: Baseball bat offender from Hemel Hempstead punished in court

 Published on: 25th June 2020   |   By: Court Reporter   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Hemel Hempstead man was today (Thursday, June 25) ordered to complete 150 hours’ unpaid work after confronting his sister’s ex-partner with a baseball bat.

Ezekiel Bell, 22, and his brother Elijah went to the victim’s flat after their sister Sarah had called for help on November 9 last year.

Luton Crown Court heard Mr Bell arrived at the flat with an aluminium baseball bat.

He was originally charged with causing actual bodily harm, but that was dropped by the prosecution.

Bell, of Allandale, Hemel, appeared for sentence having pleaded guilty to possessing an offensive weapon. He was of previous good character.

Judge Rebecca Herbert told him: “You accept you should not have taken the baseball bat. You now know better than to do that.”

She made a 12-month community order, with the condition that he carries out 150 hours’ unpaid work.

The bat is to be forfeited and destroyed.
