A Hatfield man has been given a suspended prison sentence of 26 weeks for possession of nunchucks in a public place.
Gary Curtis, 38, of Stonecross Road, admitted having an offensive weapon in a public place in Hatfield on Friday, November 3.
Curtis was unable to give a reasonable excuse for having nunchucks in Longmead.
When he appeared at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on December 12, he was given a 26-week jail sentence suspended for 24 months.
He was also given a six-month electronic curfew of 7pm to 6am.
Curtis was also ordered to pay victim services £115 and £85 court costs.
An application was made for the money to be deducted from his benefits at a rate of £20 per month starting in March.
