Grantham court: No interpreter for meeting
The sentencing of a 23-year-old who pleaded guilty to beating a woman, has been postponed as no interpreter was available for a probation meeting.
Valentinas Jersovas of First Avenue, Grantham, was due to be sentenced for an offence committed on January 16 this year at Cambridge Street, Grantham.
However, since his last appearance in court, Jersovas had missed one meeting with probation to complete a pre-sentence report, and at the second no interpreter was available.
Jersovas is now due to appear on May 21 and remains on conditional bail not to contact the defendant or to enter Cambridge Street.
