Hare coursers plead guilty

Published: 20/02/2011

Three men were caught hare coursing at Six Mile Bottom on August 20. Joseph Smith, 51, of Paddock Wood, Kent, William Smith, 42, of Willingham Avenue, Hastings, and Buddy Jarrett, 19, of Atterbury Close, Westerham, Kent, had travelled up to Cambridgeshire from East Sussex.

They were convicted at Ely Magistrates’ Court on January 6 and the car was ordered destroyed.

Smith and Kent were both fined £300, ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge. Both were also given a six-month driving ban. Jarrett was fined £100, ordered to pay £100 costs and £15 victim surcharge. He was given a three-month driving ban.

All had pleaded guilty to illegal hare coursing.

  1. This evil scum should have be given a prison sentence or at least community service, they should have been made to do jobs they hate like helping animals. The fines were to low and so was the driving ban.
