THESE five local people were sentenced in court last week for crimes they committed.

Mark Witheridge, of Whatcombe Brow in Orcheston, assaulted two people by beating them in Andover on February 18.

Witheridge was fined £115 for each of the charges and ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £92 surcharge at Basingstoke Magistrates Court on Friday, February 23.

No order for compensation was made as the court said these were isolated offences and compensation "may make the situation worse".

Kathryn Darby, of Olivier Close, drove a Honda Civic at St Pauls Roundabout, A360, while she had more than twice the drink drive limit of alcohol in her system on January 19.

Darby failed a roadside breath test and police found 76 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of her breath. The legal limit is 35.

She pleaded guilty to drink driving and was disqualified for 20 months, which can be reduced by 20 weeks if she completes an awareness course.

Darby was also fined £346 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £138 surcharge at Salisbury Magistrates Court on February 23.

Charlene Elgin, 35, of Alabare Place in Barnard Street, damaged fence panels belonging to David Thompson in Salisbury on October 26.

She was ordered to pay £157.18 compensation and her guilty plea was taken into account.

Jason Fulford, of George Street, drove a Volkswagen Caddy on York Road while over the drink drive limit on January 17. He had 64 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of his breath.

He pleaded guilty and was banned from driving for 17 months, fined £120 and must pay £85 costs and £48 surcharge on February 23.
