Four teenagers from Kent have been jailed for their part in a robbery in Chatham, which left their victim with a fractured cheekbone. The teenagers attacked a young man who was walking home from a pub in Rochester, in September last year. He was punched and kicked, before his phone and items of jewellery were stolen.
17-year-old William Reader, from Gravesend and 16-year-old Paul Cox, from Northfleet, pleaded guilty to the robbery, while 18-year-old Robert Haines from Gillingham and 19-year-old Martine Read from Gravesend, were found guilty during a trial that ended in March 2013.
The teenagers were sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday 3 May. Haines and Read each received three years in youth custody, while Cox and Reader were sentenced to two years detention and training.
