Sutton Bridge man elects for crown court trial over baton and motoring charges
A Sutton Bridge man charged with four offences, including possessing a police-style baton, has elected for crown court trial.
Magistrates in King’s Lynn on Monday could have heard the case but Stuart Paul Ashby (40) chose to be tried by a judge and jury after being warned that the punishment, if convicted, could be greater.
He is accused of having a metal friction lock baton in the boot of a car at Walpole St Andrew on October 15, having no insurance, no MOT and driving while disqualified.
Ashby, of Princes Street, entered no pleas and is due to appear at Norwich Crown Court on February 4.
