Drunken stable boy broke shop window, Carlisle court heard

A stable boy from the Nicky Richards stables in Penrith admitted damaging a shop window after going out drinking.

Jason Kyle Devlin, 20, who gave his address as The Old Rectory, Greystoke, admitted criminal damage when he appeared before magistrates in Carlisle.

The court heard how he was seen at 4.20am on March 30, walking around Penrith and stumbling. He was seen hanging onto railings and shop fronts to stop himself from falling over.

Devlin, who said he was a jockey, had had a large quantity to drink and was drunk. He said he slipped and damaged a window pane of the Works Ltd shop on Devonshire Street when his elbow struck the glass.

He was given a conditional order of discharge for one year with court costs of £85 and a victim’s surcharge of £15. Devlin was also ordered to pay £100 compensation for the damaged window.

A representative at the stables said Devlin had been a “stable lad for around two years” but had finished working on Saturday. He did not have a jockey’s licence, he said.
