Prison warning for defendant
A WOMAN has been given a final chance by a judge – despite breaching her suspended prison sentence.
Sherrine Hale was sentenced to six months detention, suspended for 18 months, after threatening paramedics with a knife.

Hale, aged 20, of Aylesbury Road, Bentilee, who had admitted the affray, pleaded guilty to the breach.

Judge Paul Glenn sentenced Hale to 20 hours unpaid work and told her to pay £110 costs.
But he warned: "If you breach the order again there will be no alternative to custody."
