Brain injury boy convicted of damaging cars

A Huddersfield teenager who damaged cars in frustration after being the victim of a car accident has been charged and fined in a Yorkshire magistrates' court.

His accident occurred in November 2007, and left him with a brain injury. Drawing attention to this personal injury, lawyer Carl Kingsley, argued that the defendant's behaviour had been worsened by this, and by the fact that his mother had died in 2004.

He also admitted that the boy had been drinking alcohol on the night in question, and that this may have contributed to his damaging the BMWs.

The car accident victim was given a conditional discharge for 12 months, and ordered to pay £60 costs and £50 compensation to each of the four victims of damage from his Incapacity Benefit.
