A Rhyl teenage boy has been told he could be jailed if he breaks off his electronic tag.
The 16 year-old, who cannot be named, was given a three month overnight curfew in April after pleading guilty to a number of charges, including assault.
But magistrates in Prestatyn heard he broke off the tag after just a fortnight – a second breach against a court order. The curfew, running from 10pm – 7am, was extended by two months.
The defence said he had been going through a difficult time because his girlfriend had been switching between him and the father of her child.
Court chairman Alun Williams told the teenager: ”It’s bad enough that you took the tag off but you have also shut yourself off from the youth justice team.” He added the bench was ”very concerned and not terribly confident” that he would comply.
