Jail warning for men who took part in street fight

Three men have been warned they could go to prison for their part in a street fight that left a man injured.

Shaun David Richardson, 19, of Hillcrest, Karl Stephen Sharkey, 25, of Central Avenue and Scott Foster, 23, of West View Road, all Distington, were originally charged with robbery after the incident involving Stuart McKinnon on April 13 last year.

But that charge was dropped at Carlisle Crown Court today when they admitted the less serious charge of assaulting Mr McKinnon, causing him actual bodily harm, instead.

Sharkey also pleaded guilty to stealing a mobile phone, cash, a wallet and cigarettes from Mr McKinnon in the same incident.

No details of what happened were given in court.

The men were remanded on bail for background reports and will be sentenced on February 27.

The judge warned them that the fact they were being allowed bail did not mean they would not eventually be sent to prison.
