Newport trio appeal to have ASBOs lifted

Kingsley Borg (5321349)

Calvin Hooper (5321358)

Kyle Hooper (5321373)

First published in News

THREE Newport men handed Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) for behaviour in the Moorland and Broadmead Park areas have lodged appeals to have them overturned.

Brothers Kyle Hooper, 21, and Calvin Hooper, 19, of Feering Street, Victoria, and Kingsley Borg, 20, of Lliswerry Road, were said to be causing a nuisance and intimidating others, at Newport Magistrates Court last month.

Specific incidents included: shouting and swearing in the street, hanging around outside shops, intimidating customers and shopkeepers, causing criminal damage by throwing stones and bricks, throwing fireworks at others and threatening violence, crime and disorder reduction officer PC Leanne Pole told the court while giving evidence.

But family members of the three men say they were never arrested or charged for any offences, and that the ASBOs are “unfair”.

The grandmother to Kyle and Calvin, Annette Hooper, said: “This ASBO is the only thing they have against their names.”

Borg’s mum Tracey Rice added: “Kingsley has barely bothered with the other boys since last year.”

Gartside Solicitors confirmed appeals had been lodged on behalf of each of them.

Solicitor Louise Warren said the Hooper brothers’ appeal would be heard at Newport Crown Court on May 2.

Borg’s hearing will take place at the same court, on May 9.

The ASBOs say the three men are not to associate with one another until March 2016.

It also says that none of them can gather in a group of more than three persons including themselves in a public place unless at any pre-organised event or associate with Curtis Hooper, Connor Hooper, Ben Thomas, or Tyler Whittington, along with a number of other restrictions.

If the order is breached then a custodial sentence can be imposed by the court.

Shame, their lives have been inconvenienced. Maybe they will have some idea of the misery they brought to so many for so long.

My heart bleeds for them - NOT

No doubt it is the taxpayer having to pay for both sides of this appeal. Personally I cant see the problem, if they haven't bothered with each other for a year then they will not be inconvenienced by this asbo.

Quote by grandmother - "this ASBO is the only thing they have against their names"

Obviously lies run deep in the family. Calvin Hooper became one of the youngest children in Britain to get an ASBO when in 2005 he, aged 10, and his brother Kyle, 12, were served with a 5 year ASBO for breaking windows, shooting at people with an air gun amongst other things.

Yet more solictors making a fat living off the tax payers by defending those who put nothing back into society except misery.

"Borg’s mum Tracey Rice added: “Kingsley has barely bothered with the other boys since last year.” "

Crikey, generally speaking though at the ages of 19 to 21 in most circles they'd be regarded as a bit on the mature side to still be described as boys - there are lots of males (and females) of their age who are married with kids holding down (if they are lucky) responsible jobs - or else struggling with debts, mortgages and rents in order to support their families.

'Borgs mum, Kingsley has hardly bothered with the other two boys since last year. '. Perhaps you can explain your son's Facebook page of 14th April and the picture of him and Hooper together!

"Kingsley has barely bothered with the other boys since last year.”

The only reason they want the asbos lifted is so they can get together again, "wreaking havoc", wherever they go.

The government has "spoilt their fun"!

An ASBO should be a one way ticket to the military . They wouldn't have it in them ,to throw stones at the Taliban . Cowards and weak will little boys ...I blame the parents ...probably with an ASBO also. The apple doesn't fall to far from the tree.

this ASBO should not be lifted, the time they cant be together is a bit harsh, but people like this need to be taught a lesson.

I totally agree.....I think we should put up BIG posters with every thugs face on, and have a direct number designated to the local police for immediate assistance when problems occur.... myself personally have experienced (STILL AM!) problems with local youths, but have to say the local police know who the "youths" are, and they get as frustrated as us because of stupid government laws! My Grandparents fought for this country, they should be forced to give back to society for their wrongs...... I am struggling to keep my cool with yobbo's, but the law always seem to protect them, and not us decent law abiding folk!

an excellent post . the government should bring in further changes to the legal aid system prohibiting repeat offenders from qualifying for it as in this case ..first time offenders then yes grant them legal aid . crown court trials etc then again yes grant them legal aid . But in these cases then no .they have no defense ,it should be automatic punishment passed down by theyre peers in society .and if i had a say in it .it would be jail
