Carlisle man admits carrying knife

A 33-year-old Carlisle man has been ordered to attend a six-month drug rehabilitation course after he admitted carrying a knife.

Anthony Robson, from Borland Avenue in Botcherby, was sentenced on Wednesday at Carlisle Crown Court after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing.

He also previously admitted damaging a window on the day that his trial was due to begin.

The court heard that he had been kept in custody since January while he waited to be sentenced, and to give the Probation Service time to prepare reports outlining sentencing recommendations.

Judge Barbara Forrester said that officers reported that Robson had made “very good progress” during a previous community order following “a long history of drug use”.

However, she felt that a recommended three-month community order was not long enough for Robson to continue with the progress he had already made.

She said: “You didn’t re-offend during the drug rehabilitation requirement.

“It would be appropriate to deal with you today and impose a further drug rehabilitation requirement.”

The judge made the community order for six months and said that the first review of progress would be next month.

Robson was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £60.
