A DRUNKEN man has been up before the magistrates after an incident in Hereford.

David Newbury entered a guilty plea to one count of being drunk and disorderly in a public place when he appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster this month.

The court heard from prosecutor Camila Toscano that 48-year-old Newbury, who was represented by Vaughn Whistance at the hearing, had been behaving in a disorderly manner when he was drunk in Union Street, Hereford, on April 10.


Newbury, who stays in a shelter in Bath Street, was given a conditional discharge of six months, with magistrates saying he would not receive a sentence when he appeared in court that day, on June 7.

Newbury’s guilty plea was taken into account by magistrates when they came to a decision on the penalty to impose at the time of his court appearance.

He was ordered to pay £85 in prosecution costs.
