A 53-year-old Grantham woman has received a community order and been placed under curfew for breaching her ASBO and conditional discharge by being drunk and disorderly.

Jennifer Hill of Uplands Drive breached the ASBO given to her in 2010 by arguing, shouting and swearing while drinking alcohol at Shaw Road in Grantham on July 20 last year.

This also put her in breach of a conditional discharge imposed on July 8 for threatening behaviour, explained prosecutor Marie Stace.

Although Hill had initially denied the anti-social behaviour, she changed her plea to guilty before the trial.

In Hill’s defence, Sonia Bhalla asked the magistrates to give her client credit for this, and added: “Who you have in front of you is a completely different person to the woman who you would have encountered back then.”

Magistrates said they were pleased with the progress Hill was making and sentenced her to a community order lasting three months which comprises a curfew to remain at home from 9pm to 7am each day.

No prosecution costs were awarded although Hill must pay a victim surcharge of £60.
