Teenager jailed for revenge
11:10am Tuesday 3rd April 2012 in Banbury
A TEENAGER cried hysterically after being locked up for the offence of ‘taking revenge’.
Chelsea French was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court yesterdayhaving earlier been convicted by jurors of the charge.
The 19-year-old, from Howard Road, Banbury, assaulted Gabrielle Haire on September 1 after the victim had reported French’s sister’s partner to the police for criminal damage.
Judge Anthony King sent her to a young offender institution for 56 days and said: “It’s wholly and utterly unacceptable you should be taking the law into your own hands.”
