Courts take ‘dim view’ of assaults on ambulance staff

COURTS take a “dim view” of assaults on members of the emergency services, a judge told a Ballymoney man who has admitted assaulting an ambulance worker.

Scott Robert Connor (26), of John Street, Ballymoney, committed the offence at John Street on April 17 this year.

At Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday the defendant pleaded guilty to a charge of assaulting an ambulance worker in the execution of his duty and also admitted a second charge of indecent behaviour in a public place at John Street on the same date.

The case was adjourned to June for a pre-sentence report and the full details of the case have yet to be outlined to the court.

District Judge Peter King told the defendant:”The court takes an extremely dim view of this sort of behaviour in respect of any emergency worker”.

That being the case, the judge added, that no guarantees could be given as to what the sentence will be.
