8:00am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
Jack Brown has been ordered to appear before a judge at Bradford Crown Court accused of escaping from police custody while he was being interviewed about a burglary in Hothfield Terrace, Skipton.
Magistrates in the town told the 19-year-old, of Heather Bank, Keighley, that they did not have the power to deal with him because escaping from lawful custody was a serious offence which could only be dealt with at the higher court.
Brown was ordered to appear at Crown Court next Friday, October 25, when a plea and case management hearing would be held.
