Custody warning for Grantham twin

Have your say

A teenager who gave his twin brother’s details when he was stopped for driving offences has been warned he faces custody.

Benjamin Garratt, 19, of Lime Grove, Grantham, admitted doing an act intending to pervert the course of justice on October 13, when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court yesterday (Monday).

Garratt also admitted driving without insurance and driving without a licence.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned sentence until next month for the preparation of a probation report and granted bail.

But he warned Garratt: “The fact that I grant you bail does not mean that you won’t go to a young offenders’ institution when you come to be sentenced. It is a serious offence.”
