Teenager who made 800 hoax calls faces jail

A LITTLE Paxton teenager who made more than 750 hoax silent calls to police over Christmas has been warned she could face jail.

Kerry Ann Moate appeared at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday), where she pleaded guilty to two charges of making the hoax calls.

The 18-year-old, of Samuel Jones Crescent, made 44 calls to the emergency 999 number between December 10 and 14, and 756 more between December 24 and 27.

Magistrates adjourned Moate’s case for a full psychiatric assessment to be completed, but warned her “custody is our starting point”.
