LB Croydon v Aaron Kennedy

Tower Bridge Magistrates granted a lifelong ASBO against a 19 year old ringleader intimidating Croydon residents and shopkeepers. None of the victims was prepared to give evidence or to have their identity revealed in court, as there was a history of reprisals against witnesses. The application was therefore based on anonymous hearsay.
