A TEENAGE attacker who assaulted police officers in Hereford has been up before the magistrates.

Erin Powell entered guilty pleas to three counts of assaulting an emergency worker by beating when she appeared before magistrates in Hereford in September. 


The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 18-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Chris Read, had assaulted two police constables and a special constable, who were acting in the course of their duties, by beating in an incident in Hereford on June 22.

Powell, of Chestnut Drive, Hereford, was handed a 12-month community order for the offences, but no compensation was ordered to be paid as there were no lasting injuries to any of the officers.

She was also fined £50 and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £185 and a £114 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
