Stamford man has sentencing adjourned
A Stamford man who has been convicted of actual bodily harm and making threats to kill has had his sentencing adjourned.
Andrew Ian Footitt, 33, of Drift Gardens, Stamford, appeared at Leicester Crown Court today (April 2) in front of Judge Martin Hurst, who adjourned the sentencing as Mr Footitt did not have any legal representation.
The brief hearing began with Footitt confirming his name and address and heard that he was convicted of the charges on March 5.
It also heard that he was warned that he should get some representation when he was in court previously.
Judge Hurst said that he had to do Footitt 'justice' and he could not be sentenced without legal representation because of the potential for a prison sentence to be handed down.
Adjourning the case until April 30, Judge Hurst granted Mr Footitt bail and instructed him to get some legal representation.
