|Contempt of Court

Pursuant to paragraph 13 of Practice Direction: Committal for Contempt of Court- Open Court

In relation to A00BO241 on 2 September 2015, at the County Court at Bow, I, District Judge North, sentence Mr Jose Santa to an immediate custodial sentence of 18 weeks for contempt of court. The basis of that sentence is that Mr Santa was found to have been in possession of an offensive weapon, namely a long bladed kitchen knife, on 4 August 2015, contrary to the terms of an order dated 15 June 2015 to which Mr Santa was subject. Mr Santa admitted being in possession of illegal drugs, namely cannabis, on 4 August 2015, again contrary to the terms of the said order dated 15 June 2015. I further order that a suspended committal for a period of 10 weeks made on 15 June 2015, imposed for being in possession of a large kitchen knife, be forthwith executed so that the total period of committal is 28 weeks.

District Judge North
