Magistrates in Boston have heard that a Spalding teenager, who at one time had been banned from the town centre and Sainsbury's in particular, had turned her life around and was about to start a job at the same supermarket.

Bethany Hall (18), of Breda Court, who admitted threatening and insulting words and behaviour and criminal damage, was said to have been climbing a fence to try to get into Spalding police station at 2.50pm on May 16.

The magistrates were told that she shouted at a police officer: “When I see you again I'll kill you, you fat lesbian bitch.”

It was also said she had kicked in one of the police station windows.

Mitigating, David Eager said that Hall, who had a long history of confrontations with the police, had been dealt with as a teenager in June and had received a 12 month supervision order for assault, damage and other offences with the intention of dealing with all her offences as a youth so she could go into adulthood with a 'clean sheet'.

He said that if this had been charged earlier, she would have received the same sentence but it was not charged until afterwards.

He said she was complying with the supervision order and told the magistrates that she was about to start a job at Sainsbury's, with their full knowledge of her past, despite having been banned from the supermarket in the past.

“She has put this sort of behaviour behind her,” he said.

Hall was given a nine month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £50 compensation to the police officer.

The magistrates wished her 'all the best' as she went into adulthood and said they hoped 'they would not see her in court again'.
