An 18-year-old from Leeds has been given a custodial sentence for breaching her anti-social behaviour injunction (ASBI).

On January 5, Carlisha Coultas was issued with the ASBI from Boston County Court, which stated she could not enter a property in William Street in Grantham.

Two days later, on January 7, she breached the ASBI and ended up in Lincoln County Court where she was given a suspended sentence for the breach.

On January 8, she was again found in breach of the ASBI and taken to Boston County Court. The district judge dealing with her case stated that he had no choice but to sentence the girl to a two-month custodial sentence for the breaches, including one month to run concurrently for the suspended sentence.

Pc Nick Smith, based at Grantham, said: “This case shows how seriously the courts take the conditions of ASBIs. It may not seem too serious to break the terms of them but the case of this young woman just goes to show that you could end up with a custodial sentence.

“There are consequences to breaching an ASBI and we would like anyone who may have one to pay attention and remember this if tempted to flout their terms.”
